From the Publisher:
Helen Fielding's devastatingly self-aware, laugh-out-loud account of a year in the life of a thirty-something Singleton launched a genre and transcended the pages of fiction to become a cultural icon.
BRIDGET JONES, a runaway best seller when it was first released in Britain, is a novel in diary form about a 30-something young woman and her romantic adventures. The plot, which has some intriguing connections to Jane Austen's PRIDE AND PREJUDICE that probably have Austen spinning in her grave, also involves Bridget's tendency to binge on chocolate, the disastrous publishing parties she goes to, her attempts to quit smoking, and the exploits of her daffy mother. One of the first novels in the "chick lit" genre, BRIDGET JONES has spawned many imitators and was also the basis for a popular movie. A New York Times Notable Book for 1998.


Kirkus Reviews
"[L]ives up to the hype: This year in the life of a single woman is closely observed and laugh-out-loud funny." 05/15/1998

Library Journal
In the course of one year, Bridget Jones will consume 11,090,265 calories, smoke 5,277 cigarettes, and write a series of delightfully funny diary entries. This will be no ordinary year in the life of this single, on-the-cusp-of-30 Londoner. She's going to keep at least one New Year's resolution, have dates with two boyfriends, create legendary cooking disasters, and be seen on national TV going up a firehouse pole instead of the planned dramatic slide down. If that isn't enough, her mom is getting a new career as the host of the TV program Suddenly Single and will disappear with a Portuguese gigolo. Supported by friends and confused by family, Bridget emerges, if not triumphant, at least hopeful about life and love. Already a best seller in Britain and winner of the Publishing News Book of the Year Award, this book should be equally popular in the United States. Recommended for all fiction collections.
