Adrian Mole and the Weapons of Mass Destruction
Working as a bookseller and living in Leicester’s Rat Wharf; finding time to write letters of advice to Tim Henman and Tony Blair; locked in mortal combat with a vicious swan called Gielgud; measuring his expanding bald spot; and trying to win-over the voluptuous Daisy . . . Adrian yearns for a better more meaningful world. But he’s not ready to surrender his pen yet.

Hilarious. Deft, gleeful mockery impales modish fads, from home make-overs to new-age crazes, while fiercer irony is trained on the country’s involvement with Iraq
The Sunday Times
Richly comic … stuffed full of humour, tragedy, vanity, pathos and, very occasionally, wisdom
The funniest book of the year. I can think of no more comical read Jeremy Paxman
