RIP Sue Townsend

The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 3/4It was very sad news to hear that British author Sue Townsend passed away this week. Her series of books featuring teenager Adrian Mole have been legendary (I suppose she’s the British Judy Blume?!).

If you haven’t had the privilege of reading any of her writing, I’d suggest starting at the beginning with “The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4.”

In the meantime, check out some of Adrian Mole’s best moments, courtesy of New Statesman.
