Bridget Jones's Biography

Bridget Jones is a fictional columnist, created by English writer Helen Fielding for her Bridget Jones's Diary column in The Independent in 1995. The column chronicled Bridget Jones's life as a thirtysomething single woman living in London, surrounded by a surrogate "urban family" of friends as she tries to make sense of life and love in the 1990s. The column lampooned the obsession of women with women's magazines such as Cosmopolitan and wider societal trends in Britain at the time. Helen Fielding published the novelisation of the column in 1996, followed by a sequel in 1999 called Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. Both novels were adapted for the big screen in 2001 and 2004, starring Renée Zellweger as Bridget Jones, and Hugh Grant and Colin Firth as the men in her life, Daniel Cleaver and Mark Darcy. After Fielding had ceased to work for The Daily Telegraph in late 1998, the feature began again in The Independent on August 4, 2005.
