Bridget Jones's Diary was first published in 1996 and applauded by critics
from Salman Rushdie to Jilly Cooper. A number one best-seller, Helen
Fielding's book has sold over fifteen million copies worldwide and has been
turned into an Academy Award-nominated film 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. Bridget Jones is
everyone's favourite spinster. In Bridget Jones's Diary she documents her
struggles through the social minefield of her 30s and tries to weigh up the
eternal question: Daniel Cleaver of Mark Darcy? She is supported through
the whole process by four indispensable friends, Shazzer, Jude, Tom and a
bottle of 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?
