Gigi Levangie Grazer's 6 favorite books that became movies

Gigi Levangie Grazer's new novel, The After Wife, is about the crack-up of a female movie producer who is widowed at 44.

One of her six favorite books that became movies, as told to The Week magazine:
Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding.

I remember strolling around a hotel pool on a Hawaiian vacation years ago and noticing every woman reading one book. That week, I too fell in love with Helen Fielding's awkward and charming Bridget.
Read about another entry on the list.

Bridget Jones's Diary also appears on Caryn James's top five list of recent novels that channel classics, Sean O'Hagan's list of the ten best fictional hangovers in print, film and song, Christina Koning's list of the best of chick-lit, and a list of eight books for the broken-hearted.
