9780749302221: The Growing Pains of Adrian Mole

“The trouble with trying to read passages from the Adrian Mole Diaries aloud is that you find yourself laughing so hard you can’t go on. It’s that kind of book.” —Kansas City Star

“As sad and devastating as it is laugh-out-loud funny. A delight!” —New York Times

The agonizingly funny, captivatingly poignant journals of England’s bespotted everyboy are now available again. An international phenomenon and perennial favorite since their initial publication made a splash in Thatcher’s Britain more than twenty years ago, The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Age 13 ¾ is now side-by-side with its hilarious sequel The Growing Pains of Adrian Mole in this collected single volume.

From the Back Cover:

Adrian Mole faces the same agonies which life sets before most adolescents: troubles with girls, school, parents, and an uncaring world. The difference, though, between young Master Mole and his peers is that this British lad keeps a diary -- an earnest chronicle of longing and disaster that has convulsed more than five million readers since its two-volume initial publication. From teenaged Adrian's obsession with intellectuality after understanding "nearly every word" of a Malcolm Muggeridge broadcast to his anguished adoration of a lovely, mercurial schoolmate, from his view of his parents' constantly creaking relationship to his heartfelt but hilarious attempts at cathartic verse, here is an outrageous triumph of deadpan, and deadly accurate, satire. ABBA, Princess Di's wedding, street punks. Monty Python, the Falklands campaign -- all the cultural pageantry of a keenly observed era marches past the unique perspective of Sue Townsend's brilliant comic creation: A. Mole, the unforgettable lad whose self-absorption only gets funnier as his life becomes more desperate.
