Knopf announced this morning that the heretofore "Untitled Bridget Jones Novel" is called Mad About the Boy.

For those of you who hoped the title reveal would give a hint of the book's contents, I'm afraid there's only disappointment in store: "When asked which boy Bridget was mad about, Fielding merely raised one eyebrow enigmatically," quoth the press release—which also included a short, unrevealing excerpt.

11.27 p.m. Just presss d SEND. Iss fineisn’t it?


You see, this is the trouble with the modern world. If it was the days of letter-writing, I would never even have started to find his address, a pen, a piece of paper, an envelope, a stamp, and gone outside at 11.30p.m. to find a postbox. A text is gone at the brush of a fingertip, like a nuclear bomb or exocet missile.




Mad About the Boy goes on sale October 15. Will you read it?
