"B.B.J."-Before Bridget Jones.

Helen Fielding's highly acclaimed first novel brings all the insight and charm of the Bridget Jones novels to a brilliantly witty, thought-provoking take on today's woman-and today's world.

Cause Celeb-the critically acclaimed debut novel from a writer with a boundless grasp of the existential and the uproarious-has just landed in America. Deftly skewering the world of celebrity fundraising, Fielding has created an alternately comic and moving satire that straddles the glitter of media London and the horrors of an African refugee crisis.

Rosie Richardson, a twenty-something literary puffette is in a totally nonfunctional relationship with an unevolved but irresistible adult male-a hotshot TV presenter who plunges her into the glitzy, bitchy inane lifestyle of London's It people. Disillusioned with the celebrity world, Rosie escapes to run a refugee camp in the African desert.

When famine strikes and a massive refugee influx heads for the camp, governments and agencies drag their heels. Bringing her former media savvy to the fore, realizing the only way to get food out fast is to bring celebrities first, Rosie returns to the life and man she fled to organize a star- studded emergency appeal from famine-racked Africa.

Seamlessly bridging cataclysm and farce through the insights of a modern-day everywoman, Cause Celeb crackles with insight into fame, passion, and altruism in our time.

"Henry was wearing his favorite T-shirt which featured a multiple choice questionaire for relief workers.

a) missionary?
b) mercenary?
c) misfit?
d) broken heart?

I was a c/d hybrid and soft in the head to boot."
