A dazzling urban satire of modern relationships? An ironic, tragic insight into the demise of the nuclear family? Or the confused ramblings of a pissed thirty-something?

Two diaries, two enduring bestsellers, one unforgettable character. Bridget Jones: The Singleton Years brings together Bridget Jones's Diary and The Edge of Reason. Helen Fielding portrays Bridget, everyone's favourite spinster, as she struggles through the social minefield of her thirties and tries to weigh up the eternal question: Daniel Cleaver or Mark Darcy? She is supported through the whole process by four indispensable friends, Shazzer, Jude, Tom and a bottle of Chardonnay.

Bridget Jones's Diary was first published in 1996 and applauded by critics from Salman Rushdie to Jilly Cooper. A number-one bestseller, Helen Fielding's book has sold over fifteen million copies worldwide and has been turned into an Academy Award-nominated film series starring Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant.
