The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13? is the first book in the Adrian Mole series of comedic fiction, written by Sue Townsend. It's my mother's fault for singing 'My Way' at two o'clock in the morning at the top of the stairs. Writing candidly about his parents' marital troubles, the dog, his life as a tortured poet and 'misunderstood intellectual', Adrian's painfully honest diary is still hilarious and compelling reading thirty years after it first appeared.
The book is written in a diary style, and focuses on the worries and regrets of a teenager who believes himself to be an intellectual.
The story is set between January 1st 1981 and April 3rd 1982, and makes reference to many historic world events of the time, such as the Falklands War and the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana.


One can not help being astonished by how well a woman author is able to describe the teenage mindset of a young boy, especially during such a turbulent time in his life.
Apart from the humorous events described in the diary, a lot of the book's humour originates from the unreliable narration of Mole who naively yet confidently misinterprets events around him. For a book that was first published more than thirty years ago, everything described in it feels surprisingly contemporary. Poor President Reagan has to carry the world's safety on his shoulders yet he is always smiling and looking cheerful. He methodically wrote everything that has happened to him in his diary, which turns out to be not so secret. That being said, I found an abundance of uncanny similarities between Sue Townsend’s character and myself: we are both intellectuals and so full of ourselves! Written in a diary style, it allows the reader to read short sessions at a time (although I have to admit it is hard to put down) and the first person narrative is nothing short of enchanting.


Most of the humor in it seems innocent enough (considering the age of the protagonist), yet there is a lot of clever satire that addresses some pretty serious topics – like politics and religion – not to say that growing up isn’t dead serious all on its own. He attended high schools in East Europe and the US and graduated from a university in England. He said in all his long years of teaching he had never come across an act of such serious vandalism. 146 f.) That was more or less the same feeling I had when I saw this painting for the first time back in 1992 myself!!!
