About the Author
Sue Townsend was born in Leicester in 1946. Despite not learning to read until the age of eight, leaving school at fifteen with no qualifications and having three children by the time she was in her mid-twenties, she always found time to read widely. She also wrote secretly for twenty years. After joining a writers' group at The Phoenix Theatre, Leicester, she won a Thames Television award for her first play, Womberang, and became a professional playwright and novelist. After the publication of The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13¾, Sue continued to make the nation laugh and prick its conscience. She wrote seven further volumes of Adrian's diaries and five other popular novels - including The Queen and I, Number Ten and The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year - and numerous well received plays. Sue passed away in 2014 at the age of sixty-eight. She remains widely regarded as Britain's favourite comic writer.

Well, not so much really. The humour is what we're used to. I think if I have a complaint it's that Adrian in his 20s seems to be pretty much the same as Adrian at 13 3/4. He writes terrible poetry and thinks that stalking Pandora will win her over, despite the fact that she seems to have become an awful person (at least with regards to how she treats Adrian, though that relationship is so dysfunctional that perhaps who can blame her).
Not the best in the series, but not the worst either.
