Description

Celebrate Adrian Mole's 50th Birthday with this new edition of the sixth book in his diaries where Adrian, Leicester's most unlikely ex-con, faces the nit-infested reality of being a single parent 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 ...'An achingly funny anti-hero' Daily Mail 'Told with Townsend's trademark deadpan humour. To people of a certain age, Adrian Mole was their Harry Potter' News of the World 'One of the great comic creations of our time.Almost every page of his diaries bring a smile to the face' Scotsman 'The funniest person in the world' Caitlin Moranshow more
