Bridget Jones: New Novel by Helen Fielding to Be Released
Everett
Bridget's back – and better than ever?

It's been 14 years since readers last heard from frumpy, lovelorn, calorie-counting Bridget Jones, memorably played on film by Renée Zellweger.

Now author Helen Fielding is readying a brand-new Jones novel, but don't expect her lovable protagonist to be exactly the same this time around.

According to a press release about the book obtained by the New York Times, the book will take place in present day London and "represents a totally new phase in Bridget's life."



Considered by some to be a possible Fielding alter-ego, the author explains: "My life has moved on and Bridget's will move on, too."

The new, currently untitled book will be released by Alfred A. Knopf in November, and it's the follow up to 1996's Bridget Jones's Diary and 1999's Bridget Jones: the Edge of Reason.
