- 10+ in stock
Tuesday 3 January
Ten years ago, Bridget Jones exploded into being in Helen Fielding’s iconic portrayal of a single woman navigating the social minefield of friendships, relationships and career through a haze of cigarette smoke and chardonnay.
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 thirty-something?
Bridget Jones's Diary was first published in 1996 and applauded by critics from Salman Rushdie to Jilly Cooper. A number-one bestseller, Helen Fielding's book has sold over fifteen million copies worldwide and has been turned into an Academy Award-nominated film series starring Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant.
Bridget Jones's Diary is followed by Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy. Published to coincide with the 20th anniversary, this new edition contains an introduction by Caitlin Moran.
One of the loveliest things about being a human is that every five years or so, you get to re-read Bridget Jones’s Diary. – Caitlin Moran
