Product description


Celebrate Adrian Mole's 50th Birthday and upcoming musical, at London's Menier Chocolate Factory, with this new double edition, featuring the first two books in the hilarious collection and see life through the spectacles of a misunderstood boy growing up in the early 1980s. (from publisher's description)

I've never experienced a greater sense of recognition than when reading The Secret Diary

(David Nicholls)

Townsend's writing is still a delight, Adrian's poetry is still dreadful, and his sense of self-importance is still hilarious (Radio Times)

I not only wept, I howled and hooted and had to get up and walk around the room and wipe my eyes so that I could go on reading (Tom Sharpe)

Very funny indeed (Sunday Times)

Townsend has held a mirror up to the nation and made us happy to laugh at what we see in it (Sunday Telegraph)

Every sentence is witty and well thought out, and the whole has reverberations beyond itself (The Times)

One of the great comic creations (Daily Mirror)

A classic. The Adrian Mole diaries are thoroughly subversive. A true hero for our time (Richard Ingrams)

Adrian Mole is one of literature's great underachievers; his tragedy is that he knows it and the sadness of this undercuts the humour and makes us laugh not until, but while, it hurts (Daily Mail)
