Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason

Helen Fielding

The Wilderness Years are over. But not for long. At the end of Bridget Jones’s Diary, Bridget hiccuped off into the sunset with man-of-her-dreams Mark Darcy. Now, in The Edge of Reason, she discovers what it is like when you have the man of your dreams actually in your flat and he hasn’t done the washing-up, not just the whole of this week, but ever.

Lurching through a morass of self-help-book theories and mad advice from Jude and Shazzer, struggling with a boyfriend-stealing ex-friend with thighs like a baby giraffe, an 8ft hole in the living-room wall, a mother obsessed with boiled-egg peelers, and a builder obsessed with large reservoir fish, Bridget embarks on a spiritual epiphany, which takes her from the cappuccino queries of Notting Hill to the palm-and magic-mushroom-kissed shores of . . .

Bridget is back. V.G.

‘If you loved Bridget Jones’s Diary, you’ll love this; there is no diminution of the freshness or fun, or of Fielding’s underlying intelligence. Success has not spoiled her – she has simply gained in confidence and aplomb . . . Fielding has a seam here she can mine endlessly until she herself gets bored, which I dare say will be long before her readers do’ Mail on Sunday

‘Funnier and more accomplished than the original diary, and in fact takes recognition humour into a new dimension . . . A glorious read, and there is a laugh on every page’ Sunday Times

‘Helen Fielding has created the most enchanting heroine for the millennium’ Jilly Cooper
