Bridget Jones's Diary

Helen Fielding

A dazzling urban satire of modern human relations? An ironic, tragic insight into the demise of the nuclear family? Or the confused ramblings of a pissed thirty-something?

‘A brilliant evocation of life as a single girl in a certain time . . . reads like Anita Loos out of Jane Austen, and any woman who has ever had a job, a relationship or indeed a mother will read it and roar’ The Times

‘I cannot recommend a book more joyfully . . . Hilariously funny, miraculously observed, endlessly touching’ Daily Telegraph

‘Wild comedy . . . observed with merciless, flamboyant wit. A gloriously funny book’ Sunday Times
