Summary

It's 1997. Adrian, 30, is a chef at an up-market restaurant, selling down-market food for ridiculous prices. There, the only person who seems to notice he can't cook is AA Gill. But problems abound when, in a fit of madness, he agrees to become a TV chef on the show Offally Good.

Yet some things don't change. Adrian's still profoundly in love with Pandora, now an MP; his parents' marriage is in trouble; and Sharon Bott, spectre of the past, returns to haunt the traumatized Adrian, who has enough on his plate as it is.

Funny As Ever

It's an all time favourite - Adrian's always a winner. I have been re-reading the books over and over since the start of secondary school and they never stopped being enjoyable.

A national treasure - what's not to love!

Adrian Mole - and national treasure what is not to love about him; funny, warm, witty and engaging.
