In celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of Bridget Jones’s Diary, revisit the iconic comic classic and discover hilarious additional writing from Helen Fielding from restaurant reviews to Bridget’s interview with Colin Firth.

Bridget Jones's Diary turns 25 this year. Winner of the 1997 British Book of the Year, and named by the Guardian as one of the ten books which best defines the 20th Century, the book has gone on to become a multi-million copy selling international phenomenon, spawning three blockbuster movies, a whole new literary genre, a lexicon of 'smug marrieds', 'singletons', 'emotional f***wittage' and 'mummy pants', and the familiar cry of 'I am Bridget Jones'.

This special bumper anniversary compendium also features an introduction and commentary from Helen Fielding, and over 100 pages of rare material taken from 25 years of her writing, including:

  • Extracts from Helen's early journalism
  • A selection of the original Independent newspaper columns
  • Bridget Jones interviews Colin Firth
  • Later columns on #MeToo, Brexit, and Bridget's lockdown life
  • A selection of hilarious restaurant reviews featuring the real life inspirations for Jude, Shazzer, Auntie Una, Mum and Daniel Cleaver
