Серия: "Macmillan Readers"

Bridget Jones`s Diary is the devastatingly self-aware, laugh-out-loud account of a year in the life of a thirty-something Singleton on a permanent doomed quest for self-improvement. Caught between the joys of Singleton fun, and the fear of dying alone and being found three More... Weeks later half eaten by an Alsatian; tortured by Smug Married friends asking, How`s your love life with lascivious, yet patronizing leers, Bridget resolves to reduce the circumference of each thigh by 1. 5 inches, visit the gym three times a week not just to buy a sandwich, form a functional relationship with a responsible adult and learn to program the VCR. With a blend of flighty charm, existential gloom, and endearing self-deprecation, the diary has touched a raw nerve with millions of readers the world round. Read it, laugh and crash your head onto the table before you cry, Bridget Jones is me!

Helen Fielding

Helen Fielding (born 19 February 1958 in Morley, West Yorkshire) is an English author, best known as the author of the novel "Bridget Jones's Diary" (winner of the 1998 British Book of the Year award) and its sequel "". In 2003, she was listed in The "Observer" as one of the 50 funniest acts in British comedy.

"Olivia Joules and The Overactive Imagination", a spoof on the spy genre, was published in 2004.

The Bridget Jones books had their origins in a column published in "The Independent" and "The Daily Telegraph" in 1997 and 1998. In 2005, she resumed her Bridget Jones column at the Independent. Bridget becomes pregnant and has a baby in this series, but love and commitment remain elusive.

In her early years, she attended Wakefield Girls High School in Wakefield, England. Fielding graduated from St. Anne's College, University of Oxford with an English degree, and worked in television journalism for several years, including a stint as a researcher on Noel Edmonds's "The Late, Late Breakfast Show" in the mid-1980s,cite news|url=http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2005/03/25/nbbc25.xml&sSheet=/news/2005/03/25/ixnewstop.html|title= Bringing a comic touch to BBC 1|first=Richard|last=Alleyne|publisher=The Daily Telegraph|date=2005-03-25|accessdate=2007-01-19] before writing her first novel, "Cause Celeb". She was for a time the girlfriend of screenwriter Richard Curtis, who went on to write "Four Weddings and a Funeral", "Notting Hill" and the "Blackadder" series. The director of the film adaptation of "Bridget Jones's Diary", Sharon Maguire, appeared in the column/book as one of Bridget's friends, 'Shazzer'. Fielding also remains close friends with the writer Nick Hornby.

In February 2004, she gave birth to her first child, a boy named Dashiell Michael, with longtime boyfriend Kevin Curran, a writer for "The Simpsons". Their second child, a daughter, was born on 16 July 2006. In the early 2000s, Fielding appeared in "The Simpsons"' episode "A Star Is Born-Again" as herself.
