    Description"The Lost Diaries of Adrian Mole, 1999-2001" is the seventh book in Sue Townsend's brilliantly funny "Adrian Mole" series. Monday January 3, 2000. So how do I greet the New Millennium? In despair. I'm a single parent, I live with my mother...I have a bald spot the size of a jaffa cake on the back of my head...I can't go on like this, drifting into early middle-age. I need a Life Plan...The 'same age as Jesus when he died', Adrian Mole has become a martyr: a single-father bringing up two young boys in an uncaring world. With the ever-unattainable Pandora pursuing her ambition to become Labour's first female PM; his over-achieving half-brother Brett sponging off him; and literary success ever-elusive, Adrian tries to make ends meet and find a purpose. But little does he realise that his own modest life is about to come to the attention of those charged with policing The War Against Terror...Bestselling author Sue Townsend has been Britain's favourite comic writer for over three decades. "An achingly funny anti-hero". ("Daily Mail"). "One of the great comic creations of our time. Almost every page of his diaries bring a smile to the face". ("Scotsman"). Sue Townsend is Britain's favourite comic author. Her hugely successful novels include eight "Adrian Mole" books, "The Public Confessions of a Middle-Aged Woman (Aged 55)", "Number Ten", "Ghost Children", "The Queen and I", "Queen Camilla" and "The Woman Who Went to Bed For a Year", all of which are highly acclaimed bestsellers. She has also written numerous well-received plays. She lives in Leicester, where she was born and grew up.

    Review quote
    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
