Product description

Review

Celebrate Adrian Mole's 50th Birthday with this new edition of the sixth book in his diaries where Adrian, Leicester's most unlikely ex-con, faces the nit-infested reality of being a single parent (from the publisher's description)

Told with Townsend's trademark deadpan humour and cringe-worthy mishaps. To people of a certain age, Adrian Mole was their Harry Potter (News of the World)

Very funny indeed. A satire of our times (Sunday Times)

An achingly funny anti-hero (Daily Mail)

Adrian Mole is one of the great comic creations of our time (Scotsman)

To people of a certain age, Adrian Mole was their Harry Potter. Loveable in its celebration of mediocrity, it's told with Townsend's trademark deadpan humour (News of the World)

The diaries are a satire of our times...very funny indeed (The Sunday Times)

The funniest person in the world (Caitlin Moran)

From the Inside Flap

Adrian Mole has entered early middle age and is now 'the same age as Jesus was when he was killed' (33).

Father to the grammatically challenged Glenn, and William, who takes a 'Big Boy Arouser' condom to nursery school as his innocent contribution to a hot air balloon project, Adrian is a single parent who has an on/off relationship with his housing officer, Pamela Pigg. Will she help him to move from the notorious Gaitskell estate before William joins the Mad Frankie Fraser fan club?

In the meantime, Adrian continues to be scandalised by his irresponsible parents who are conducting a matrimonial square-dance with the Braithwaites - the parents of the beautiful but unobtainable Pandora, who is ruthlessly pursuing her ambition to be New Labour's first woman P.M. - and to confide in his diary.

His current worries include: indestructible head-lice; his disappointment that the BBC still refuse to broadcast his serial killer comedy 'The White Van'; his raging jealousy when his accomplished half-brother Brett arrives on his doorstep; moral decline in The Archers; his desperate attachment to two therapists; his mild addiction to Starburst (formerly Opal Fruits); a small earthquake in Leicester; and, perhaps most significantly, the dawn of a new millennium.
