Plain Jane 200516: Eggs, Donald Trump, and the church on Google

I recently had the pleasure  and privilege of interviewing Fay Weldon. The Grande Dame of contemporary women’s fiction-with-an-edge –  with whom I spent an hour on stage at the Chipping Norton Literary Festival (Jeremy Clarkson did not attend) – can count among her achievements not just 34 novels and several volumes of short stories, radio plays, stage plays, essays, TV scripts, a CBE, FRSL, a couple of professorships, three husbands and four children but  – let us never forget –  a significant  contribution to the success of the  1960s campaign:  Go to Work on an Egg. 591 more words
