THE MULTI-MILLION COPY BESTSELLER

A dazzling urban satire of modern human relations? An ironic, tragic insight into the demise of the nuclear family? Or the confused ramblings of a pissed thirty-something?

As Bridget documents her struggles through the social minefield of her thirties and tries to weigh up the eternal question (Daniel Cleaver or Mark Darcy?), she turns for support to four indispensable friends: Shazzer, Jude, Tom and a bottle of chardonnay.

PRAISE FOR BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY

"A brilliant evocation of life as a single girl in a certain time ... reads like Anita Loos out of Jane Austen, and any woman who has ever had a job, a relationship or indeed a mother will read it and roar" The Times

"I cannot recommend a book more joyfully ... Hilariously funny, miraculously observed, endlessly touching" Daily Telegraph

"Rings with the unmistakable tone of something that is true to the marrow. It defines what it describes" Times Literary Supplement

"Wild comedy ... observed with merciless, flamboyant wit. A gloriously funny book" Sunday Times

"Effortlessly addictive ... presents a perfect zeitgeist of single female woes" Sunday Express
