Description

The former special forces officer is heading to Europe, to go face to face with some of Putin's most killer henchmen! Glenn is now in the British Army while William is living with his mother and Mole's ex-wife, Jojo, in Nigeria. A stage musical adaptation by Jake Brunger and Pippa Cleary opened at Leicester's Curve Theatre in March 2015.

David Walliams contributes a foreword to this beautiful 30th Anniversary edition of The Secret Diary Num Pages: 336 pages. Over several books he develops a script for a white van serial killer comedy programme which the BBC is reluctant to produce.And the love of his life, Pandora Braithwaite, is too busy as the newly elected MP for Ashby-de-la-Zouch to notice him. Adrian Mole: The Prostrate Years is the eighth book in Sue Townsend's brilliantly funny Adrian Mole series. True Confessions of Adrian Albert Mole” the third novel of the series is set over five years beginning in 1984.

Another of his works The Restless Tadpole: an Opus is described by one potential agent as "effete crap".And the love of his life; Pandora Braithwaite; is the newly elected MP for Ashby-de-la-Zouch - one of 'Blair's Babes'.

But living at home; clinging to his threadbare cuddly rabbit 'Pinky'; working as a paper pusher for the DoE and pining for the love of his life; Pandora; has proved to him that adulthood isn't quite what he expected. It was first performed at Phoenix Arts, Leicester and went to Wyndham's Theatre, London in December 1984. However, he feels that he needs to adopt avant-garde or other high literary styles if he is to be taken seriously. Still a fine r ead, and if only for nostalgic 40 or 50 somethings rather than today's teenagers this remains a cracking nsight into the psyche of the young person. The ORIGINAL teenage diarist is back in the second book in Sue Townsend's brilliantly funny, touching and bestselling Ad.He was just a kid growing up in Leicester, England, with acne and a crush and a bully and a crazy home life. As beloved by critics as she was by readers the length and breadth of the nation, she chronicled the lives of ordinary people in Britain through times of upheaval and great social change. Despite opposing personalities, the siblings enjoy a close relationship, and Adrian often feels that she is the only family member who understands him. It's also interesting as a look at the '80s, as I didn't realise at first that they were written in the '80s as opposed to looking back at them.

To mark the royal wedding between Prince William and Catherine Middleton, Sue Townsend wrote an exclusive Adrian Mole story for the Observer in 2011. Though we’ll never learn Adrian’s fate, his diagnosis of prostate cancer in the last book made for a potentially bleak future.But then reading on I was once again drawn in by the smartness of the writing, the insight into what was important for a teen boy, the cleverness of the characterisations. Pandora becomes a prominent MP; school bully Barry Kent becomes a successful poet; Adrian’s best friend Nigel becomes a blind, gay, Buddhist van driver (though not necessarily all at the same time).
