Fay Weldon Obituary, Death – Fay Weldon, an American novelist who recently passed away at the age of 91, was, to an extraordinary degree, the product of her own active imagination. She was deceitful and evasive, but at the same time, she willfully and wittily affirmed life. She was a realist who giggled her way through every sentence, a pragmatist who giggled her way through every sentence, and a polemicist whose opinions formed themselves around the plot of her most recent book.
In her raucous autobiography, which she titled Auto da Fay and which was published in 2002, she penned the aforementioned words. She made this statement at the time, and it can be paraphrased as follows: “I long for a day of judgment when the plot lines of our lives will be neatly tied, and all puzzles will be explained, and the meaning of events will be made clear.” “I suppose that we turn to fiction because no such thing is going to happen, and at least on the printed page we can observe beginnings, middles, and ends, and we can determine where morality resides.” [Citation needed] “I suppose that we turn to fiction because no such thing is going to happen.”
With these lines, Weldon gave a big wink to her future obituarists: catch me if you can, she appears to be saying – there is nothing you can write about me that I have not written about myself, and it is the storyteller who is in command of the meaning of events, insofar as there is one. Catch me if you can. Catch me if you can. Catch me if you can. Catch me if you can. Catch me if you can Try to get a hold of me if you can. Catch me if you can. Catch me if you can.
Try to get a hold of me if you can. Try to get hold of me if you can. It is possible that it is not going too far to say that, like Ruth, the “heroine” of one of Weldon’s most well-known novels, The Life and Loves of a She-Devil (1983), Weldon molded herself into a succession of identities designed to sandbag her against the misfortune of having been raised – literally and metaphorically – in an earthquake zone. This statement was made in one of Weldon’s most well-known novels, The This is one of the most well-known novels written by Weldon.
