When Helen Fielding first wrote Bridget Jones' Diary, charting the life of a 30 - something singleton in London in the 1990s, she introduced readers to one of the most beloved characters in modern literature. The book was published in 40 countries, sold more than 15 million copies worldwide, and spawned a best-selling sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. The two books were turned into major blockbuster films starring Renee Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth. With her hotly anticipated third instalment, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, Fielding introduces us to a whole new enticing phase of Bridget's life. An uproariously funny novel of modern life, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy is a triumphant return of our favourite Everywoman.
'In this third installment of the diaries, our hapless heroine continues to agonise over the tribulations of modern life large and small, from single parenthood and dating in the age of social media to the perils of the skinny jean.' -- Justine Jordan, Guardian
