The Growing Pains of Adrian Mole

'“If Vol. 1 of young Mole’s reflections has already been elevated to the classics division, this is quite fit to join it.” —Time Out   “Touching, as well as hilariously amusing . . . I was utterly hooked. . . . [It] made me laugh out loud and was sharp as knives.” —The GuardianPraise for the Adrian Mole Novels “Part Woody Allen, part a kindred spirit to the heroes of Philip Roth’s early novellas, Adrian inspires a rare warmth and affection. . . . As sad and devastating as it is laugh-out-loud funny . . .  A delight!” —The New York Times on The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13¾   “Screamingly funny . . . Set to become as much a cult book as The Catcher in the Rye.” —Jilly Cooper on The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13¾   “Adrian Mole is the truth behind the dream we shared when we read The Catcher in the Rye and discovered that we were all Holden Caulfields. A phenomenon!” —The Washington Post   “Highly entertaining. Sharply observed. Succeeds brilliantly!” —The Village Voice   “Townsend’s considerable achievement is to have created a world that is underscored with sadness and disaster and yet hilarious as viewed through the increasingly appalled eyes of Adrian.” —Time Out   “The trouble with trying to read passages from the Adrian Mole diaries aloud is that you find yourself laughing so hard you can’t go on. It’s that kind of book.” —Kansas City Star   “Long before Bridget Jones obsessed about weight, single life and alcohol units, Adrian Mole reigned as Britain’s Diarist of Record.” —The Miami Herald   “Loveable in its celebration of mediocrity, it’s told with Townsend’s trademark deadpan humour. To people of a certain age, Adrian Mole was their Harry Potter.” —News of the World   “[Townsend is] the funniest person in the world.” —Caitlin Moran   “The crisply hilarious saga of Britain’s favorite fictional diarist.” —Booklist on Adrian Mole: The Cappuccino Years  '
