Bridget Jones, the iconic character who sold fifteen million books worldwide, inspired a major motion picture franchise, and became beloved as a chardonnay-swilling everywoman, is back in this hotly anticipated third installment.

What do you do when your girlfriend’s sixtieth birthday party is the same day as your boyfriend’s thirtieth? Is it better to die of Botox or die of loneliness because you’re so wrinkly? Is it wrong to lie about your age when online dating? Is it morally wrong to have a blow-dry when one of your children has head lice? Is it normal to be too vain to put on your reading glasses when checking your toy boy for head lice? Does the Dalai Lama actually tweet, or is it his assistant? Is it normal to get fewer followers the more you tweet? Is technology now the fifth element? Or is that wood? If you put lip plumper on your hands do you get plump hands? Is sleeping with someone after two dates and six weeks of texting the same as getting married after two meetings and six months of letter writing in Jane Austen’s day?

Pondering these and other modern dilemmas, Bridget Jones stumbles through the challenges of loss, single motherhood, tweeting, texting, technology, and rediscovering her sexuality in—warning: bad, outdated phrase approaching!—middle age.

In a triumphant return after fourteen years of silence, Bridget Jones: Mad about the Boy is timely, tender, touching, page-turning, witty, wise, outrageous, and bloody hilarious.

  • “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.”

    Babble

  • “Its big heart, incisive observations and zippy pace…make the prospect of middle age not so bad at all. It is possible I cried a little at the end, but then, as Bridget might say: am sucker for happy endings.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Plenty has changed for everyone’s favorite London singleton since her v. funny diary first charmed the world in 1998…but she’s still adorably clueless.”
