Synopsis

With an introduction by journalist Hadley Freeman

9st 2, cigarettes smoked in front of Mark 0 (v.g.), cigarettes smoked in secret 7, cigarettes not smoked 47 (v.g.).

Bridget’s second diary ushers in a reformed woman. She is no longer a smoker (well, not much), the wilderness years are over, and she is at last united with man-of-her-dreams Mark Darcy. But things aren’t perfect: there’s an eight-foot hole in the wall of her flat, she’s increasingly worried about a certain boyfriend-stealing beauty, and her friends’ mad advice is getting her nowhere – something has to change. And so Bridget decides to embark on a spiritual epiphany to the palm- and magic-mushroom-kissed shores of Thailand. Surely it will be the perfect place to set her life on course once and for all . . .

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason is Bridget at her best: funny, wise, and, as ever, a little bit sloshed. A number-one bestseller by Helen Fielding, it is, alongside Bridget Jones’s Diary, a modern classic and one of the funniest books you’ll ever read.

‘Funnier and more accomplished than the original diary, and in fact takes recognition humour into a new dimension . . . A glorious read, and there is a laugh on every page’ Sunday Times

‘If you loved Bridget Jones’s Diary, you’ll love this; there is no diminution of the freshness or fun, or of Fielding’s underlying intelligence. Success has not spoiled her – she has simply gained in confidence and aplomb . . . Fielding has a seam here she can mine endlessly until she herself gets bored, which I dare say will be long before her readers do’ Mail on Sunday

‘Helen Fielding has created the most enchanting heroine for the millennium’ Jilly Cooper
