Bridget Jones To Return in November

Helen Fielding will publish a new book featuring her beloved heroine, Bridget Jones. Alfred A. Knopf plans a first printing of 250,000 copies for the November publication.

Set in London, the new book will show Jones at “a later stage in her life.” Fielding explained: “My life has moved on … and Bridget’s will move on, too … I hope people will have as much fun reading it, as I am writing it.”

Fielding has sold more than 15 million copies of Bridget Jones’s Diary (1996) and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (1999). The novelist will be a featured speaker at BEA this year during a breakfast on June 1st.
