READ & DOWNLOAD ↠ Female Friends In this brilliantly witty caustic yet compassionate novel Fay Weldon explores the lives of three. Understand and forgive Understand husbands wives father mothers Understand dog fights above and the charity box below understand fur coated women and children without shoes Understand school Jonah Job and the nature of the Deity understand Hitler and the Bank of England and the behaviour of Cinderella s sisters Open minded and generous and sooo altruistic isn t it However if you think that Female Friends is under the sign of forgiveness and overunderstanding you re sorely mistaken Neither is it about free choice in spite of a second seductive explanation of the hallucinating events that incessantly happen to the heroines there is no such thing as an accident We make tactless remarks because we wish to hurt break our legs because we do not wish to walk marry the wrong man because we cannot let ourselves be happy board the wrong train because we would prefer not to reach the necessary destination Nope my friends female or not the sign that governs this extraordinary novel is self delusion A theme developed on one hand by using the jigsaw techniue you are presented with a general and schematic picture and gradually you learn the details in a to and fro journey from the effects to causes and on the other hand by exhausting some stereotypes gathered from almost any genre sentimental comic realistic psychological etc such as the conjugal triangle the heartless mother the debauched artist and so onA development so skilfully orchestrated by a puppet master author who knows how to dissimulate the strings that it is no wonder the result was an ambiguity of perception some readers perceived the novel as grim desperate and desolate meanwhile others considered it sarcastic parodic and immensely funny As for me I think oxymoronic phrases like delightful hell Sara Blackburn describe it bestIndeed the stories narrated are usually so despicable that border on absurd in one of the first scenes Chloe brings breakfast to her husband in bed and he complains about the coldness in the eyes of the maid while he bedded her the other night She listens and dutifully picks up a girl s hair on the pillow for Oliver doesn t like untidiness Her friend Grace is no better after she lost custody of her first two children her maternal instinct seemed to die and left the third with Chloe and now is interested in none As for Marjorie she renounced at motherhood and sex altogether to focus only on her career Here we have some well known literary clich s the submissive wife the beautiful bitch the career woman clich s that Fay Weldon instead of avoiding thickens until they become implausible and laughable because of the barely concealed sarcasm the merciless irony not only of female but also of literary stereotypes How can Chloe leave How can she carve through these patterns of dependency and hope in the interests of something so impractical and elusive as personal happiness I don t care whose fault it is says Grace It makes me feel better Bad behaviour is very animating Chloe You should try it yourself some time One could get hooked on it Marjorie I am one of nature s dead ends I am a walking Black Hole I have a hollow inside me a bottomless pit and you could shovel all the husbands and children in the world into me and still it wouldn t be filled upThe novel is full of entangled relationships interchangeable lovers neglectful parents sometimes hyped up to caricature especially the male characters who follow their pricks like donkeys allegedly follow carrots As for the style Sara Blackburn sums it up pretty well The narrative itself delicately managed in many layers is terse clean and so witty as often to be epigrammatic Sometimes the dialogue is telescoped into script form a non intrusive device which admirably matches the pace and the structure of the plotting Definitely a to read book black humour and all
