October 2014 Non-Fiction Book of the Month.

A third volume of autobiography from Stephen Fry, at its heart is a frank admission of his cocaine fuelled life in the 80’s and 90’s. Wrapping up with extracts from his diaries of the time he reveals a very different Stephen Fry showing what fame can do when it strikes before you’ve conquered your demons.

Who is Sue Baker

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Fry’s latest volume of memoir is crisply entertaining and unfailingly candid and self-deprecating. During the period chronicled by the book – the eighties and early nineties – he was living a truly heady existence to which his diary excerpts attest, writing or recording by day, attending celebrity bashes or drinking dens at night; burning the candle at both ends in a spectacular fashion and heading for inevitable burnout. Even when mortified, Fry’s reflections are as erudite as ever and one only can only hope for further instalments.

Synopsis

More Fool Me by Stephen Fry

It is a heady tale of the late Eighties and early Nineties, in which Stephen - ever more driven to create, perform and entertain - burned bright and partied hard with a host of famous and infamous friends, regardless of the consequences. This electric and extraordinary book reveals a new side to Mr Fry.
