The Wilderness Years are over! But not for long. At the end of ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary’, Bridget hiccupped off into the sunset with man-of-her-dreams Marcy Darcy. Now, in The Edge of Reason, she discovers what it is like when you have the man of your dreams actually in your flat and he hasn’t done the washing up, not just the whole of this week, but ever.
Lurching through a morass of self-help book theories and mad advice from Jude and Shazzer, struggling with a boyfriend-stealing ex-friend with thighs like a baby giraffe, an 8ft hole in the living room wall, a mother obsessed with boiled-egg peelers, and a builder obsessed with large reservoir fish, Bridget embarks on a spiritual epiphany, which takes her from the cappuccino queues of Notting Hill to the palm- and magic-mushroom-kissed shores of Thailand.
