Adrian Mole is Back! Sue Townsend Interview


Adrian Mole: The Prostrate Years by Sue TownsendFor those of us who have followed Adrian Mole from his angst as a 13 3/4-year-old,  the publication of Adrian Mole: The Prostrate Years is exciting news.

Now 39 1/4, Adrian, still married to Daisy,  is diagnosed with prostate cancer (note, the typo in the title is intentional and that is the book’s title ). Apparently despite the typical Adrian Mole topical humour, there is a darker-side to the story than Adrian fans are used to.  Happily though, Pandora is said to make the expected dramatic entrances that she is known for as do Adrian’s parents.

And in true Adrian Mole fashion, during his radiation and chemotherapy,  Adrian dwells upon the fraught love-life of the hospital nurse.

No matter what, the thought of Adrian Mole makes me chuckle to myself and chant, also to myself fortunately for those around me, We shall, we shall wear red socks!

Read an interview with Adrian Mole author,  Sue Townsend in The Guardian.
