Adrian Mole is middle-aged but still scribbling.
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 . . .

‘Completely hilarious, laugh-out-loud, a joy’ Daily Mirror
