Fay Weldon is a prolific writer, best known for her numerous novels, which focus on the same issues as her drama—the lives and communities of women, the politics of marriage, and the ways that sexual politics affect relationships between women. Her novels are popular both in Britain and the United States and have been translated into many languages. Besides her fiction for adult readers, she has published several children’s books.
Weldon has also written television and radio plays, including original work, episodes of series, and adaptations of existing works such as Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice (1813). In addition, she has published nonfiction books, including ones on writers Jane Austen and Rebecca West and essays on writing.
