Product description

"True Confessions of Adrian Mole, Margaret Hilda Roberts and Susan Lilian Townsend" is the third book in Sue Townsend's brilliantly funny "Adrian Mole" series. Monday June 13th. I had a good, proper look at myself in the mirror tonight. I've always wanted to look clever, but at the age of twenty years and three months I have to admit that I look like a person who has never even heard of Jung or Updike. Adrian Mole is an adult. At least that's what it says on his passport. But living at home, clinging to his threadbare cuddly rabbit 'Pinky', working as a paper pusher for the DoE and pining for the love of his life, Pandora, has proved to him that adulthood isn't quite what he expected. Still, without the slings and arrows of modern life what else would an intellectual poet have to write about...Included here are two other less well-known diarists: Sue Townsend and Margaret Hilda Roberts, a rather ambitious grocer's daughter from Grantham. Bestselling author Sue Townsend has been Britain's favourite comic writer for over three decades. "Essential reading for Mole followers". ("Times Educational Supplement"). "Wonderfully funny and sharp as knives". ("Sunday Times"). 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.
