Here is the delirious 1925 Jazz-Age classic that no less an authority than Edith Wharton called "THE great American novel".Hide synopsis

This is a delightful romp through the Roaring Twenties, written in diary form. It may or may not have been the inspiration for Bridget Jone's Diary, but it certainly reads like it. Very different from the movie, although it is clear in the text how the movie was derived from the book. However, reading the book is an entirely different experience, so I recommend it if this period in history is of interest to you or if you might be interested in the origins of chick lit. A number of authors from this period are difficult to read, but Anita Loos is fun and universal and irreverent. A gumdrop of a book.
