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.

Helen Fielding was born in Yorkshire. She worked for many years in London as a newspaper and TV journalist, travelling as widely and as often as possible to Africa, India and Central America. Fielding is the author of four novels: Cause Celeb, Bridget Jones's Diary, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination, and co-wrote the screenplays for the movie of Bridget Jones's Diary and the sequel based on The Edge of Reason. She now works full-time as a novelist and screenwriter and lives in London and Los Angeles.

“Snappily written, observationally astute and at times genuinely moving. Its big heart, incisive observations, nice sentences, vivid characters and zippy pace make it a book you could happily spend the night with. It is possible I cried a little at the end, but then, as Bridget might say: am sucker for happy endings.”
—Sarah Lyall, The New York Times Book Review

“In reviving Bridget now, Fielding has dared to question the happy ending, and in doing so she holds a mirror up to our changing values. True love is not guaranteed for life, even in romcoms, and women in their 40s and 50s are no longer prepared to fade away, alone and invisible. Those of us who loved her the first time will be glad to welcome her back—big pants, fillers and all.”
—Stephanie Merritt, The Guardian

“The everywoman problems Bridget had as a thirtysomething single—Is it ridiculous for me to wear thigh-high boots? Will I die alone?—translate pretty seamlessly to middle-age singlehood. When she’s hitting the club for the first time in a decade or undergoing a regrettable Botox treatment, it’s the same old Bridget.”
Los Angeles Times

“Although the laughs are still there aplenty, there is also a sad, bittersweet edge to the novel that makes it feel…a lot more grown up, like our gal herself. I laughed, I cried and most of all I loved…. Bridget’s back—which is nothing short of ‘totes amazog’ as she herself now likes to say. Hurrah!”
—Sarah Lawrence, Daily Mail

“Our favorite British heroine Bridget Jones is joining the motherhood industrial complex. Author Helen Fielding (who is one of the most brilliant comedic authors of our time) is bringing back Bridget, her granny pants, and now a nursing bra.... I swear, October [the release date] can’t get here fast enough!... I’ve been waiting almost a decade for its release and when it comes out, I plan to move somewhere far, far away from my kids so I can read it with both enjoyment and peace and a good glass of Chardonnay.”
—Joanna Mazewski, Babble
