Synopsis

The Fry Chronicles by Stephen Fry

Thirteen years ago, Moab is my Washpot, Stephen Fry's autobiography of his early years, was published to rave reviews and was a huge bestseller. In those thirteen years since, Stephen Fry has moved into a completely new stratosphere, both as a public figure, and a private man. Now he is not just a multi-award-winning comedian and actor, but also an author, director and presenter. In January 2010, he was awarded the Special Recognition Award at the National Television Awards.

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
