Book Description

25 Oct 2012
Whether you are single, married, or simply Fry-curious, Mrs Stephen Fry, the world's almost leading relationship expert, leads you gently but firmly though the marital process from proposal to divorce, dispensing invaluable and unique advice alongside spectacular recipes, incomparable poetry and candid personal accounts of her first meeting with Stephen and their almost perfect wedding day. You will learn where to find Mr or Miss Right without the aid of night vision goggles, how to marry them as cheaply as possible and, if you wish, how to stay married to them. As well as revealing how to keep the magic alive in a relationship and how to cope with Christmas and the in-laws, Edna shares her childcare secrets, household management tips (including how best to sweep things under the carpet) and talks frankly and explicitly about you-know-what. You may never be able to have a marriage as perfect as Mrs Fry's but if you read this book, follow her advice and ignore page 162, you may just have an Almost Perfect Marriage. 'A good husband is like a good wine - smooth, full bodied and best kept in the cellar' Edna Fry

About the Author

EDNA FRY is the long-suffering wife of Stephen and mother of his five, six or possibly seven children. Her first book, Mrs Fry's Diary - a frank and revealing insight into a year in the Fry household - received great critical claim and provoked a good deal of bemusement. Her talents are many and varied - her Spam Bourguignon has to be tasted to be believed, her poetry is unlike anything you will ever read and her childcare techniques legendary. And she manages all of this while carrying out her somewhat demanding wifely duties (especially on a Sunday morning). When not being a domestic goddess, literary marvel and carrying Stephen home from the pub, she likes to spend her time on Twitter (largely to keep an eye on her husband's fanciful announcements), where she won the prestigious 2010 Shorty Award for Funniest Tweeter. She also likes tea. A lot.

I got this book as a wee present to cheer mydelf up. And by heck cheer me up it did. I am not going to give to much away but every married person should be given a copy of this on their wedding night. This will enable them to see what is ahead and how to handle it when it arises.

Bit bland this one from the National Treasure that is Mr Fry (Mrs Fry). A book for a train journey - funny but not pant wettingly so!
