Product Description
<p><b>Bridget Jones—one of the most beloved characters in modern literature (v.g.)—is back! In Helen Fielding's wildly funny, hotly anticipated new novel, Bridget faces a few rather pressing questions:    <br></b><br>What do you do when your girlfriend’s sixtieth birthday party is the same day as your boyfriend’s thirtieth?<br><br>Is it better to die of Botox or die of loneliness because you’re so wrinkly?<br><br>Is it wrong to lie about your age when online dating?<br><br>Is it morally wrong to have a blow-dry when one of your children has head lice?<br><br>Is it normal to be too vain to put on your reading glasses when checking your toy boy for head lice?<br><br>Does the Dalai Lama actually tweet or is it his assistant?<br><br>Is it normal to get fewer followers the more you tweet?<br><br>Is technology now the fifth element? Or is that wood?<br><br>If you put lip plumper on your hands do you get plump hands?<br><br>Is sleeping with someone after two dates and six weeks of texting the same as getting married after two meetings and six months of letter writing in Jane Austen’s day?<br><br>Pondering these and other modern dilemmas, Bridget Jones stumbles through the challenges of loss, single motherhood, tweeting, texting, technology, and rediscovering her sexuality in—Warning! Bad, outdated phrase approaching!—middle age.<br><br>In a triumphant return after fourteen years of silence, <i>Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy</i> is timely, tender, touching, page-turning, witty, wise, outrageous, and bloody hilarious.<br><br><br>TODAY Book Club Selection</p>
