This is the chronicle of the misadventures of a London single woman in her early 30s--a goodhearted, overweight, insecure, bumbling, and desperate-to-be-attached Everywoman Bridget Jones--a woman who loves men and loves sex. A true believer in the possibility of romantic fulfillment, on New Year's Day Bridget resolves to lose 20 pounds, cut down on alcohol, cigarettes, and sweets, and find the right man, or indeed, any man. Bridget charts her own progress in her diary, from "tragic spinster" to "wanton sex goddess," with an intrepid spirit, and a delightfully rueful sense of humor
