The Fry Chronicles Synopsis

In January 2010, he was awarded the Special Recognition Award at the National Television Awards.

The Fry Chronicles Press Reviews

'Heartbreaking, a delight, a lovely, comfy book.' The Times

 

'Perfect prose and excruciating honesty. A grand reminiscence of college and theatre and comedyland in the 1980s, with tone-perfect anecdotes and genuine readerly excitement. What Fry does, essentially, is tell us who he really is. Above all else, a thoughtful book. And namedroppy too, and funny, and marbled with melancholy.' Observer

 

'Arguably the greatest living Englishman.' Independent on Sunday

 

'Extremely enjoyable.' Sunday Times

 

'Fry's linguistic facility remains one of the Wildean wonders of the new media age. The patron saint of British intelligence.' Daily Telegraph
