I Love My Love
Fay Weldon’s comedy of manners fizzes with biting wit and sophistication.
Two contrasting wives, country bumpkin Anne and sophisticate Cat, swap places for a week to compare lifestyles for an article in a trendy magazine. Anne finds herself in a chic London apartment with Cat’s slick advertising exec husband, Mark, making regular trips to the hairdresser’s and Harrods. Meanwhile Cat journeys to deepest Devon to bake, cook, clean and toil in the failing village shop with gentle, sexually-repressed, Derek. They are all deeply unsatisfied with their lives, and more importantly, their spouses, and the life swap becomes a wife swap.
However, is the grass truly greener?
