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?

'The best, the original, the seminal' Mail on Sunday 'Helen Fielding is one of the funniest writers in Britain and Bridget Jones is a creation of comic genius' Nick Hornby 'Bridget Jones's Diary rings with the unmistakable tone of something that is true to the marrow. It defines what it describes' Nicola Shulman, Times Literary Supplement 'A brilliant comic creation. Even men will laugh' Salman Rushdie 'I cannot recommend a book more joyfully ... Hilariously funny, miraculously observed, endlessly touching' Jilly Cooper, Daily Telegraph 'Effortlessly addictive ... [Bridget Jones's] hilarious diary presents a perfect zeitgeist of single female woes' Sunday Express 'Wild comedy ... observed with merciless, flamboyant wit. A gloriously funny book' Sunday Times '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
