Helen Fielding's latest book about the misadventures of indomitable singleton Bridget Jones won the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for comic fiction Thursday, gaining the writer rewards that include champagne and a pig.
Bridget Jones's Baby: The Diaries was declared winner of the prize named in honor of novelist P.G. Wodehouse.
The book sees Bridget uncertain which of her rival beaus — stalwart Mark Darcy or fickle Daniel Cleaver — is the father of her child.
It was released to accompany the movie of the same name.
Fielding will receive a Gloucester Old Spot pig, a jeroboam of champagne and a set of Wodehouse novels at the May 27 Hay Festival in Wales.
