Fay Weldon: In conversation with Brendan O’Neill

Bounding onto the literary scene to great acclaim in 1983 with her novel The Life and Loves of a She Devil, Fay Weldon – writer, author and radical thinker extraordinaire – returned to the limelight this year with the highly anticipated (and long overdue) sequel, Death of a She Devil. Dubbed ‘not your typical feminist’, Weldon has lived a colourful life challenging groupthink and bursting bubbles along the way.

Filmed at the Battle of Ideas 2017, this fascinating discussion with spiked editor Brendan O’Neill delves into her works, feminism, transgender politics, the generational divide, satire, Brexit and much more.
