Helen Fielding on Radio 2 book Club

p01hvxljMake a date for this one, Helen Fielding talks about Mad about the Boy (it’s on order!) on Drivetime with Simon Mayo Monday 14th October at around 5pm.

‘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. Both of these books were turned into major blockbuster films starring Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth.

This is the hotly anticipated third instalment of the Bridget Jones trilogy. This book introduces us to a whole new enticing phase of Bridget’s life, set in contemporary London. It includes the challenges of maintaining sex appeal as the years roll by and the nightmare of the skinny jean. Mad About The Boy is an uproariously funny novel of modern life.’
