display_description Multiple personality disorder gets a modern makeover in Fay Weldon's wickedly subversive, hilarious send-up of English traditions and divorce Lady Angelica Rice used to be a teenage rock sensation called Kinky Virgin. She gave it up to marry fat, lazy, near-destitute Sir Edwin Rice-and that's when Angelica's "splitting" began: a chorus of four women in her head, each one demanding to be heard. Now, after eleven years-during which she spent all her money restoring Edwin's crumbling ancestral manse to its former glory-he's suing her for divorce. He accuses Angelica of making excessive sexual demands, refusing to bear children, taking drugs, and failing to provide proper food for his guests-all of which are lies. But what's worse is that she still loves him. Egged on by her avenging alter egos-meek Jelly, shattered Lady Rice, sexually insatiable Angel, and practical Angelica-she gets her revenge in this seminal novel about marriage, divorce, and one woman's liberating leap into free fall.
