From the Publisher
?Helen Fielding is one of the funniest writers in Britain and Bridget Jones is a creation of comic genius? Nick Hornby.
Now a major motion picture from Universal Pictures starring Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth.
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?

From Our Editors
She's always trying to cut down on smokes, cut out the binges and cut off her alcohol intake, but when the weekend rolls around, who's really counting? She's Bridget Jones, smart and impudent British writer Helen Fielding's fashionable, witty and ultra-modern creation that's taken the best-selling book world by storm. A hilarious and no-holds-barred account of modern single life hitting the dregs with style, Bridget Jones's Diary is sound bite after sound bite of uproarious Brit humour at its razor-sharpest.
