Summary British adolescent angst has never been so laugh-out-loud funny as in this first encounter with a sharp-witted, pining, and achingly honest underdog (The New York Times). Perhaps when I am famous and my diary is discovered, people will understand the torment of being a 13-year-old undiscovered intellectual. Adrian Mole is approaching fourteen, and like all radical intellectuals he must amass his grievances: His acne vulgaris is grotesque; his crush, Pandora, received seventeen Valentines Day cards; his PE teacher is a sadist; he fears his parents marriage is over since they no longer smoke together; his dog has gone AWOL; no one appreciates his poetry; and Animal Farm has set him off pork for good. If everyone were as appalled as Adrian Mole, it would be a better world. Introducing one of literatures most endearing figures: a luckless adolescent of great expectations and dwindling patience who knows allor believes he doesand tells all (The Observer). First published in 1982, Adrians chronicle of angst has sold more than twenty million copies worldwide, spawned seven sequels, and been adapted for television and staged as a musical. Heres where it all began.
