Ruth is an abnormally tall and ugly housewife whose loveless husband, Bobbo, considers their relationship an open marriage based on convenience alone. Bobbo only truly loves his mistress, a famous, wealthy romance novelist named Mary Fisher.

When Ruth at last passionately indicates her disapproval for Bobbo’s extramarital affair, he deems her a “she-devil,” causing her to reassess her life and plan to behave in accordance with such a label.

This is number 3 out of 20 books edited by Süddeutsche Zeitung Bibliothek.

My cover art shows a corpulent woman sporting a couple of devil's horns. Stylewise, I used a thin ink pen and some gray to add depth to the image.

20 Lieblingsbücher ausgewählt von der Feuilletonredaktion der Süddeutschen Zeitung

Humor hat viele Facetten. Die Süddeutsche Zeitung Bibliothek des Humors zeigt den ganzen Reigen literarischen Humors – skurril, satirisch, makaber, hintergründig, böse, ironisch, oder einfach lustig.

Eines Tages hat die unattraktive Ruth Patchett endgültig genug von den Affären ihres Mannes. Seine Familie, sein Haus, seinen Job, seine Freiheit – auf einem gnadenlosen Rachefeldzug will sie alles zerstören, was ihm
wichtig ist. Und dabei sind ihr alle Mittel recht. Die Teufelin ist ein herrlich bösartiger Roman, der nicht nur Frauen zur Schadenfreude einlädt. In der Verfilmung aus dem Jahr 1989 wirkte neben Hauptdarstellerin Roseanne Barr auch Meryl Streep mit.
