"Fay Weldon is known and celebrated as "an insightful and persuasive social commentator with an exhilarating mind" (Susan Isaacs). No one has chronicled the marital front with as much wit and wickedness. In her last, willfully sexy novel, Life Force, she sang the praises of the male specimen. In Trouble she returns to remind us that through the ages marriage has been a nightmare for a great many women, and that now husbands have psychiatrists to make it worse." "Ah, domestic bliss. Annette Horrocks has every reason to be happy. She lives in a lovely London house with her devoted husband, Spicer, and their two children by previous marriages; her first novel is about to be published; and after ten years of trying, she is finally pregnant with a child who will glorify the marital union. But Spicer is cruel and distant. He used to dismiss psychiatry, yet now he spouts New Age astrology and accuses Annette of murdering his inner child. Worse, Annette's friend Gilda discloses that Spicer is having an affair. Annette thinks she is going mad, and that's not the end of it." "This is a novel for every wife who has ever felt betrayed or manipulated, or thought she was losing her mind - and for every husband who ought to beware. Psychiatrists might watch their backs, too. Weldon is at her most vengeful and enticing in Trouble, and as her readers know, her standard is extremely high."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
