Adrian Mole is thirty, single and a father.
His cooking at a top London restaurant has been equally mocked ('the sausage on my plate could have been a turd') and celebrated (will he be the nation's first celebrity offal chef?).
And the love of his life, Pandora Braithwaite, is too busy as the newly elected MP for Ashby-de-la-Zouch to notice him.
Frustrated, disappointed and undersexed, Adrian despairs until a letter from his past changes everything . . .
