Description

Adrian Mole faces the same agoniesthat life sets before most adolescents: trouble s with girls, school, parents, and an uncaring world. The difference, though, between young Master Mole andhis peers is that this British lad keeps adiary--an earnest chronicle of longingand disaster that has charmed morethan five million readers since its two-volumeinitial publication. From teenagedAdrian's anguished adoration of a lovely, mercurial schoolmate to hisview of his parents' constantly creaking relationship to hisheartfelt but hilarious attemptsat cathartic verse, here is anoutrageous triumph of deadpan--anddeadly accurate--satire. ABBA, PrincessDi's wedding, street punks, Monty Python, the Falklands campaign . . . all the culturalpageantry of a keenly observed eramarches past the unique perspective ofSue Townsend's brilliant comic creation: A . Mole, the unforgettable lad whoseself-absorption only gets funnier as hislife becomes more desperate.
