Bridget Jones's Diary (Picador 40th Anniversary Edition)

Helen Fielding

Bridget Jones’s Diary was first published in 1996 and applauded by critics from Salman Rushdie to Jilly Cooper. It has since sold over fifteen million copies worldwide and been turned into an Academy Award-nominated film.

A dazzling urban satire of modern relationships? An ironic, tragic insight into the demise of the nuclear family? Or the confused ramblings of a pissed thirtysomething singleton?
