The hilarious, bestselling follow-ups to Sue Townsend’s The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 and 3/4 : The Growing Pains of Adrian Mole, True Confessions of Adrian Albert Mole and Adrian Mole: The Wilderness together in one volume.

Sunday July 18th.

My father announced at breakfast that he is going to have a vasectomy. I pushed my sausages away untouched.

Charting nearly ten years in the life of Adrian Mole, from his increasingly troubled adolescence and schooling to his first job as newt counter for the DoE, from his parents’ marital troubles to his own difficult relationship with Pandora, from the failure of his early poems to the even grander failure of his epic novels, these three novels in one volume provide a hilarious portrait of one young man’s coming of age.

‘He will be remembered some day as one of England’s great diarists. No matter what your troubles may be Adrian Mole is sure to make you feel better’ Evening Standard

Celebrate Adrian Mole’s 50th Birthday with this new edition of the FIFTH BOOK in his diaries, where Adrian faces divorce, fatherhood and (short-lived) television stardom.

—————————

Wednesday August 13th
Here I am again – in my old bedroom. Older, wiser, but with less hair, unfortunately. The atmosphere in this house is very bad. The dog looks permanently exhausted. Every time the phone rings my mother snatches it up as though a kidnapper were on the line.

Adrian Mole is thirty, single and a father. His cooking at a top London restaurant has been equally mocked (‘the sausage on my plate could have been a turd’) and celebrated (will he be the nation’s first celebrity offal chef?). And the love of his life, Pandora Braithwaite, is too busy as the newly elected MP for Ashby-de-la-Zouch to notice him.

Frustrated, disappointed and undersexed, Adrian despairs until a letter from his past changes everything . . .

‘With the Mole books, Townsend has an unrivalled claim to be this country’s foremost practising comic novelist’ Mail on Sunday

‘Adrian Mole really is a brilliant comic creation. Every sentence is witty and well thought out, and the whole has reverberations beyond itself’ The Times

‘One of the greatest comic creations. I can’t remember a more relentlessly funny book’ Daily Mirror

‘Three cheers for Mole’s chaotic, non-achieving, dysfunctional family. We need him’ Evening Standard

(The Secret Diary Of Adrian Mole Aged 13 ¾, The Growing Pains Of Adrian Mole, True Confessions Of Adrian Albert Mole, Adrian Mole: The Wilderness Year, Adrian Mole The Books PDF by Sue Townsend Can an adult still have a secret diary? Everyone’s favorite angsty adolescent Brit is now a tormented twentysomething and still “a brilliant comic creation” (The Times).
 
Question: What have I done with my life? Answer: Nothing.
 
At 23¾ years old, Adrian Mole is now an adult and almost prepared. On the upside: He’s fallen for a perfectly lovely Nigerian waitress; he’s seeing a therapist so as to talk about himself without interruption; and he’s added vowels to his experimental novel-in-progress (so much more accessible to the masses!). The downside? Pandora is probably history; a pea-brained rival has been published before him to great acclaim; and worse, Adrian realizes he may not be uncommon after all. In fact, he may fall somewhere within the range of normalcy. How can an intellectual be expected to live with that?
 
“Thank God for Sue Townsend and Adrian Mole” (The Observer). Her “achingly funny anti-hero” (Daily Mail) returns to take the world by storm—or least weather it—in the beloved bestselling series from “one of Britain’s most celebrated comic writers” (The Guardian). Adrian’s continuing chronicle of angst has sold more than twenty million copies worldwide, and been adapted for television and staged as a musical—truly “a phenomenon” (The Washington Post).

‘The funniest person in the world’ Caitlin Moran

Celebrate Adrian Mole’s 50th Birthday with this new edition of the SEVENTH BOOK in his diaries where Adrian falls in love, is inconvenienced by the war and faces his new nemesis: a swan from the local canal.

—————————

Wednesday April 2nd
My birthday.
I am thirty-five today. I am officially middle-aged. It is all downhill from now. A pathetic slide towards gum disease, wheelchair ramps and death.

Adrian Mole is middle-aged but still scribbling. Working as a bookseller and living in Leicester’s Rat Wharf; finding time to write letters of advice to Tim Henman and Tony Blair; locked in mortal combat with a vicious swan called Gielgud; measuring his expanding bald spot; and trying to win-over the voluptuous Daisy . . . Adrian yearns for a better more meaningful world. But he’s not ready to surrender his pen yet…

Bestselling author Sue Townsend has been Britain’s favourite comic writer for over three decades.

‘Hilarious. Deft, gleeful mockery impales modish fads, from home make-overs to new-age crazes, while fiercer irony is trained on the country’s involvement with Iraq’ Sunday Times

‘Richly comic … stuffed full of humour, tragedy, vanity, pathos and, very occasionally, wisdom’ Guardian

‘Completely hilarious, laugh-out-loud, a joy’ Daily Mirror

Smoking in a public place or place of work is forbidden in England. Though if you a lunatic, a prisoner, an MP or a member of the Royal Family you are exempt. Adrian Mole is thirty-nine and a quarter. He lives in the country in a semi-detached converted pigsty with his wife Daisy and their daughter. His parents George and Pauline live in the adjoining pigsty. But all is not well. The secondhand bookshop in which Adrian works is threatened with closure. The spark has fizzled out of his marriage. His mother is threatening to write her autobiography (A Girl Called Shit). And Adrian’s nightly trips to the lavatory have become alarmingly frequent . . . ‘A tour de force by a comic genius and if it isn’t the best book published this year, I’ll eat my bookshelf’ Daily Mail, Books of the Year ‘Hilarious.

I cant wait until I am fully mature and can make urban conversation with intellectuals.
 
Growing up among inferiors in Great Britain isn’t easy for a sensitive fifteen-year-old “poet of the Midlands” like Adrian Mole, considering everything in the world is conspiring to scar him for life: His hormones are in a maelstrom; his mother is pregnant (at her age!); his girlfriend, Pandora, is in shutdown; radio stardom isn’t panning out; he’s become allergic to non-precious metals; and passing his exams is as dire a crisis as the Falkland Islands.
 
From weathering a profound but shaky romance with the love of his life to negotiating his parents’ reconciliation to writing his poetry on restroom walls (why on earth did he sign his name?), “Adrian Mole is as engaging as ever” (Time Out). The sequel to the beloved TheSecret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13¾ continues Adrian’s chronicle of angst, which has sold more than twenty million copies worldwide, and been adapted for television and staged as a musical. Adrian Mole is truly “a phenomenon” (The Washington Post).

‘Townsend is such a deft, stylish comedian and tragedian, and this book is funny and heartbreaking in turns’ The Pool

What happens when a duvet day turns into a duvet year?

Sue Townsend, the bestselling author of the Adrian Mole series, returns with The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year, a funny and touching novel about what happens when someone stops being the person everyone wants them to be.

The day her twins leave home, Eva climbs into bed and stays there. For seventeen years she’s wanted to yell at the world, ‘Stop! I want to get off’. Finally, this is her chance.

Her husband Brian, an astronomer having an unsatisfactory affair, is upset. Who will cook his dinner? Eva, he complains, is attention seeking. But word of Eva’s defiance spreads.

Legions of fans, believing she is protesting, gather in the street. While Alexander the white van man brings tea, toast and sympathy. And from this odd but comforting place Eva begins to see both herself and the world very, very differently. . .

Bestselling author Sue Townsend has been Britain’s favourite comic writer for over three decades, The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year is her hilarious new novel.

‘Laugh-out-loud . . . a teeming world of characters whose foibles and misunderstandings provide glorious amusement. Something deeper and darker than comedy’ Sunday Times

‘She fills the pages with turmoil, anger, passion, love and big helpings of wit. It’s full of colour and glows with life’ Independent

‘Hilarious and totally Townsend. There were parts where I laughed until I cried’ 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

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
