Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason
by Helen Fielding
A new year begins - and Bridget Jones, the globally bestselling unflinchingly self-disciplined, and definitely practically nonsmoking heroine is about to discover what happens when you have the man of your dreams actually in your flat and he hasn't been to the supermarket - not just tonight, but ever.

In the potty! Well, do it in Daddy's hand, then!"), Bridget experiences a zeitgeist-esque Spiritual Epiphany somewhere between the pages of How to Find the Love You Want Without Seeking It (can self-help books really help self?), protective custody, and a lightly chilled Chardonnay.
