At the Guardian: The Adrian Mole books as roman fleuve.
Plus: Sue Townsend on her creation.
I had three part-time jobs. During school hours I was a community worker, working with elderly people who'd been moved into tower blocks, leaving their dogs, cats, rabbits and neighbours behind. In the early evening I was a youth worker, working mostly with adolescent boys. At 9pm I caught a bus into town and went to my third job: waitress and barmaid at the Fish and Quart.*
