Publisher's Summary

It's 1997. Adrian, 30, is a chef at an up-market restaurant, selling down-market food for ridiculous prices. There, the only person who seems to notice he can't cook is AA Gill. But problems abound when, in a fit of madness, he agrees to become a TV chef on the show Offally Good.

Yet some things don't change. Adrian's still profoundly in love with Pandora, now an MP; his parents' marriage is in trouble; and Sharon Bott, spectre of the past, returns to haunt the traumatized Adrian, who has enough on his plate as it is.

ruddy good stuff

Sue Townsend takes a look at the mid 90's through Adrian's idiosyncratic and naiive worldview. 1997 sees the Clinton affair, death of Lady Di, election of Tony Blair and the emergence of pre-chav culture in britain. Dry, ironic, insightful and satirical as a social commentary, Sue Townsend offers a well observed time capsule of middle Britain at a crossroads of its own identity and ideologies. The pathos of Adrian Mole is both humorous and heartwarming, warts and all. GNU Sue Townsend

Funny As Ever

It's an all time favourite - Adrian's always a winner. I have been re-reading the books over and over since the start of secondary school and they never stopped being enjoyable.

A national treasure - what's not to love!

Adrian Mole - and national treasure what is not to love about him; funny, warm, witty and engaging.
