Bridget Jones is back! When Helen Fielding first wrote Bridget Jones' Diary, charting the life of a 30-something singleton in London in the 1990s, she introduced readers to one of the most beloved characters in modern literature. The book was published in 40 countries, sold more than 15 million copies worldwide, and spawned a best-selling sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. The two books were turned into major blockbuster films starring Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth. With her hotly anticipated third installment, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, Fielding introduces us to a whole new enticing phase of Bridget's life set in contemporary London, including the challenges of maintaining sex appeal as the years roll by and the nightmare of drunken texting, the skinny jean, the disastrous e-mail cc, total lack of Twitter followers, and TVs that need 90 buttons and three remotes to simply turn on. An uproariously funny novel of modern life, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy is a triumphant return of our favorite Everywoman.
Bridget Jones, a 30-something single woman in London, decides to take control of her life, by recording her thoughts, her weight, her number of cigarettes, and her dating life, all in her diary.
Cause Celeb-the critically acclaimed debut novel from a writer with a boundless grasp of the existential and the uproarious-has just landed in America. Deftly skewering the world of celebrity fundraising, Helen Fielding has created an alternately comic and moving satire that straddles the glitter of media London and the horrors of an African refugee crisis. Disillusioned with life as a literary publicist in London, as well as with her hotshot, unevolved TV presenter boyfriend, twenty-something Rosie Richardson chucks the glitz and escapes to run a refugee camp in the African desert.' 1 When famine strikes and a massive refugee influx threatens to overwhelm the camp, governments and agencies drag their heels. Calling her media to get food fast is to bring the celebrities first, Richardson returns to London to organize a star-studded and risky emergency appeal.
At the close of the last millennium, Helen Fielding debuted the irrepressible (and blockbuster-bestselling) Bridget Jones. Now, Fielding gives us a sensational new heroine for a new era . . . Move over 007, a stunning, sexy-and decidedly female-new player has entered the world of international espionage. Her name is Olivia Joules (that's J. O. U. L. E. S. the unit of kinetic energy) and she's ready to take America by storm with charm, style, and her infamous Overactive Imagination. How could a girl not be drawn to the alluring, powerful Pierre Ferramo-he of the hooded eyes, impeccable taste, unimaginable wealth, exotic international homes, and dubious French accent? Could Ferramo really be a major terrorist bent on the Western world's destruction, hiding behind a smokescreen of fine wines, yachts, and actresses slash models? Or is it all just a product of Olivia Joules's overactive imagination? Join Olivia in her heart-stopping, hilarious, nerve-frazzling quest from hip hotel to eco-lodge to underwater cave, by light aircraft, speedboat, helicopter, and horse, in this witty, contemporary, and utterly unputdownable novel deluxe.
