I don't read many new novels, and I usually regret it when I do. However, Helen Fielding has announced a third Bridget Jones book, due out on my birthday.
For anyone who also likes Bridget, you could do a lot worse in the meantime than read Fielding's first novel, "Cause Celeb," whose heroine is very Bridget-like. The book packs a punch, too, it's not just a novel of manners.
It was so little regarded that it wasn't even published in the US until after "Bridget Jones' Diary" became a big success.
I learned from the Guardian story that the Bridget movies were not popular in the US. Can't say I'm surprised. The books were much funnier.
