In Fay Weldon's 1983 classic, The Life and Loves of a She Devil, women fought men for power and won. In 2017, men take the ultimate step to get their power back. Ruth Patchett, the original She Devil, is now eighty-four and keen to retire. But who can take up her mantle? Enter Ruth's grandson Tyler, a confident twenty-something: beautiful, resentful and unemployed. Tyler won't be satisfied until he can transition into the ultimate symbol of power and status. A woman.
