This is the brand new edition of the hilarious eighth book in the
brilliant "Adrian Mole" series, Sue Townsend's "Adrian Mole: The
Prostrate Years". Sunday July 1st. No Smoking Day. A momentous day!
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 live in the adjoining
pigsty. But all is not well. The 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 Sh*t"). 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). "Effortlessly
hilarious. Brilliant satire and tragedy". ("The Times").
"Hilarious. Comic gold". ("Sunday Times"). Sue Townsend is
Britain's favourite comic author.
