Adrian Mole Goes All Medieval

The lack of success for his novel 'Lo The Flat Hills of My Homeland' has not deterred Adrian Mole from writing. In the latest Adrian Mole novel, The Prostate Years, he is busy writing a Medieval play with a cast of 60.
I am still reading the book so I am unable to say much about the play except that so far it seems to be about a holy monk, Abbot Godfried, who is travelling about with a basket containing the entrails and anus of King John. Since John I's heart was buried at York, a place was needed to bury his anus. I shall make a prediction that the anus is buried in Mangold Parva in Leicestershire where Adrian lives in the Piggeries with his parents.
Truth is, John I, all of him, was buried at Worcester Cathedral.

The Prostate Years! I didn't think Mr Mole was quite that old?

The Red Witch said...

He is in his late forties. Guys need to start watching at this point.
Of course it is fun. He never does anything right. Poor guy. I wonder if he is finally going to get together with Pandora. I will post more about the play as it progesses.

oops. Just found his age. Adrian is 39 and a half and it was cancer. Poor Adrian has to go through radiation therapy. I like the realism.

My memory (which may well be playing tricks on me) says that I read the first Adrian Mole Book when I was in the 6th form (we all read it), which makes him approx. 4 years younger than me, so 42??

Yes, poor Adrian.

It gets worse. The radiation doesn't work and he ends up with chemo and he still doesn't have sex with Pandora.

The outlook is rather black but he can always buy these blue little wonders and try once again... poor bloke.

Tracy said...

Did he ever have sex with Pandora? (apart from in his imagination). You'd think he'd have grown out of his obsession by now! That's so sad.

The Red Witch said...

Nope he never did. She gave it out to anyone but him. Of course it is sad but that is why we love Adrian Mole. He is such a loser but he never gives up.
