"Funny, poignant . . . His prose feels like an ideal form of conversation."---"Washington Post"
""The Fry Chronicles" is so slickly charming it seems churlish to harrumph"---"Wall Street Journal"
"Mr. Fry is pitiless on the subject of his young self, but he's also wry and tender and hilarious."----WSJ.co
"Fry begins with an unnecessary apology for the ordinariness of his writing, and then proceeds to write masterfully, assessing himself with his signature blend of self-loathing and baffled amusement . . . The memoir stands as proof of the author's intelligence, wit, and insight."--"Entertainment Weekly "
"Stephen Fry's new volume of memoirs, "The Fry Chronicles: An Autobiography" is a delightful account of the legendary British comedian/actor's years at Cambridge, and his first years in show business. Even his occasional overwriting is so quickly followed by witty self-deprecation that he never loses the reader's sympathy and interest. To read this book is to fall in love (perhaps not for the first time) with its subjects: one of the world's greatest universities, and the British comic tradition. Strongly recommended."---"National Review"
