Bridget Jones is back!
What has the hapless, loveable heroine of Helen Fielding's international bestseller Bridget Jones's Diary been up to since she took the world by storm in the 1990s?
The cover of Fielding's new novel, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, hints at motherhood, though the author isn't saying.
But she does say the book, to be published on Oct. 15, is set in present-day London. Bridget, who was played by Renée Zellweger on the big screen, hasn't kicked all of her vices (cigarettes and alcohol), and dating and dieting remain problem areas.
