Trust me, I totally understand a lady's right to a little wink wink, nudge nudge. Sex, in a nutshell. It's just, normally, I like to at least know a person's name before I get a good look at their nethers.

Austria's Vorarlberg region is one of the world's leading winter sport destinations. The techniques employed on the mountains around Lech and Zürs in the early part of the 20th century became integrated into the Alpine skiing technique that would, in time, be taught in ski resorts around the globe.

My complicated relationship with Bridget Jones

There have been a lot of female comic heroines in British and American cinema but they have come and gone. Bridget Jones has stayed. Her polka-dot, oversized knickers stand proudly next to the Tramp's baggy and worn out track suite in the history of fictional characters. Equality has been achieved.

Bridget Jones: Women's Biggest In-Joke?

OMG she's back. Is Bridget Jones really the anti-feminist devil incarnate, as many commentators have alleged? Or does the woman once billed as 'everywoman' in fact represent the parts of ourselves of which we're not so proud?

Thank You Helen Fielding For Acknowledging Widows

Endeavour Press | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Entertainment
Endeavour Press

Fast forward twenty years and me and the fictious Bridget Jones once again find ourselves in similar situations. We are both widows with young children. She has two, I have three. I am fascinated that Helen Fielding has followed this storyline as, since I was widowed seven years ago, I have been amazed at how little contemporary literary reference there is to us 'young widows'.

Proud & Prejudiced: Jane Austen, The Mother of All Chick-Lit Novelists

Endeavour Press | Posted 18.08.2013 | UK Entertainment
Endeavour Press

News about the forthcoming Bridget Jones was released recently. It struck me as quite strange that many called Helen Fielding's first diary the original chick-lit novel. I couldn't help think that those who did so had not actually read the book, for if they had they would have realised how much Bridget Jones's Diary owes a debt to Jane Austen.

Superman, Batman and Spiderman Are So Not American

Go watch the Superman making-of featurette. Henry Cavill, the actor playing Superman, is English. I know you know this, but still, it's wonderfully unnerving to hear him talk. He went to a boarding school in Buckinghamshire. He did prep. Superman was nurtured not on an alien planet, but in the Home Counties.
