New Bridget Jones Title Revealed

Helen Fielding has revealed more details about her next Bridget Jones book, called Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy.

Alfred A. Knopf will publish the book on October 15, Fielding’s first Jones book since 1999. The first two novels have sold over 15 million copies. Here’s more from the release:
