Sex, of course, provides nothing less than a cornucopia of depression, despair and ungovernable rage. Fay Weldon's THE LIFE AND LOVES OF A SHE-DEVIL translates the whole wicked mess into wicked comdy. At its darkly comic heart is clunky, ill-favored Ruth, whose bounder of a husband, Bobbo, has taken up with Mary Fisher, a rich, famous and predatory writer of romances. Ruth, after one disloyalty too many, metamorphoses from long-suffering clod to vengeful beauty. Davina Porter's chilly, mesmerizing reading significantly heightens the effect of this stunning, ironical tale of revenge. K.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 96]
