Sue Townsend draws a close to this series rather hastily: after The Cappuccino Years, Adrian Mole, age 38, lives with his parents while Glen (illegitimate son) is stuck in Iraq, the William (son from a divorce) in Nigeria. He finds himself into a downward spiral of credit card debt, moves into a rat-infested loft he cannot afford, is harrassed by a flock of neighbourhood swans, purchases a talking refrigerator, gets engaged against his will, falls in love with his ex-fiance's sister... the only thing he probably ever did right was to keep his job.
It's filled with bits of dry British humor, various political references, the usual Adrian Mole fare. I am somewhat upset that it's come to an end though I cannot imagine if it will be too... distressing? a piece for Townsend to continue conjuring up ideas for his diary?
Anyhow. It ended with a happily ever after. Well Aidy, I wish you well. Thanks for sharing your life with such intellectual gems eg. the Norwegian Leather Industry poems. Love. Graceshu. graceshu # 12:08 AM
