Adrian Mole Diaries : The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4 and the Growing Pains of Adrian Mole - 97 edition

Adrian Mole Diaries : The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4 and the Growing Pains of Adrian Mole (ISBN10: 0380730448; ISBN13: 9780380730445)
ISBN13: 978-0380730445
ISBN10: 0380730448

Summary: Adrian Mole faces the same agonies which life sets before most adolescents: troubles with girls, school, parents, and an uncaring world. The difference, though, between young Master Mole and his peers is that this British lad keeps a diary -- an earnest chronicle of longing and disaster that has convulsed more than five million readers since its two-volume initial publication. From teenaged Adrian's obsession with intellectuality after understanding "nearly ever ...show morey word" of a Malcolm Muggeridge broadcast to his anguished adoration of a lovely, mercurial schoolmate, from his view of his parents' constantly creaking relationship to his heartfelt but hilarious attempts at cathartic verse, here is an outrageous triumph of deadpan, and deadly accurate, satire. ABBA, Princess Di's wedding, street punks. Monty Python, the Falklands campaign -- all the cultural pageantry of a keenly observed era marches past the unique perspective of Sue Townsend's brilliant comic creation: A. Mole, the unforgettable lad whose self-absorption only gets funnier as his life becomes more desperate.
