Bridget Jones's Diary

Bridget Jones's Diary
by Helen Fielding
"129 lbs. (how is it possible to put on 4 pounds overnight? Could flesh have somehow solidified becoming denser and heavier (repulsive, horrifying notion)); alcohol units 2 (excellent) cigarettes 21 (poor but will give up totally tomorrow); number of correct lottery numbers 2 (better, but nevertheless useless)".

Bridget Jones's Diary is a laugh-out-loud chronicle that charts a year in the life of Bridget Jones, a single girl on a permanent, doomed quest for self-improvement--in which she resolves to: visit the gym three times a week not merely to buy a sandwich, form a functional relationship with a responsible adult, and not fall for any of the following: misogynists, megalomaniacs, adulterers, workaholics, chauvinists or perverts. And learn to program the VCR. Caught between her Singleton friends, who are all convinced they will end up dying alone and found three weeks later half-eaten by an Alsatian, and the Smug Marrieds, whose dinner parties offer ever-new opportunities for humiliation, Bridget struggles to keep her life on an even keel (or at least afloat). Through it all, she will have her readers helpless with laughter and shouting, "Bridget Jones is me!"
Custody

Custody
by Manju Kapur
Raman is a fast rising marketing executive at a global drinks company; Shagun is his extraordinarily beautiful wife. With his glittering future, her vivid beauty, and their two adorable children-eight year old Arjun who looks just like her and two year old Roohi who looks just like him the pair appear to have everything.

Then Shagun meets Raman's dynamic new boss Ashok and everything changes. Once lovers and companions, husband and wife become enemies locked in an ugly legal battle over their two children. Caught in their midst is the childless Ishita who is in love with the idea of motherhood.

Custody is the riveting story of how family-love can disintegrate into an obsession to possess children, body and soul, as well as a chilling critique of the Indian judicial system. Told with nuance, sympathy, and clear-sightedness, it confirms Manju Kapur's reputation as the great chronicler of the modern Indian family.

The Secret Scripture
Add To Bookshelf
The Secret Scripture
by Sebastian Barry
Roseanne McNulty is nearing her one-hundredth birthday (although no one is quite sure of her age) and she faces an uncertain future. The Roscommon Regional Mental Hospital where she's spent the best part of her adult life is preparing for closure. Over the weeks leading up to this upheaval, she talks often with Dr Grene her psychiatrist. This relationship although guarded is trusting after so many years and intensifies and complicates as Dr Grene mourns the death of his wife.

The story that emerges through their respective journals, - of Roseanne's family in 1930s Sligo - is at once shocking and deeply beautiful. Through the haze of memory and constant retelling, Roseanne's story becomes an alternative and secre history of Ireland. This is a story exquisitely written, one of a life blighted by terrible mistreatment and ignorance, and yet one marked by love,passion and hope.
