Product description

Review

"This is, above all else, a thoughtful book. And namedroppy too, and funny . . . Its camaraderie of tone lets it wear its learning lightly yet leaves you with . . . new insights, new ways of looking at things."---"The Guardian"

"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"

From the Inside Flap

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.

Much loved by the public and his peers, Stephen Fry is one of the most influential cultural forces in the country. This dazzling memoir promises to be a courageously frank, honest and poignant read. It will detail some of the most turbulent and least well known years of his life with writing that will excite you, make you laugh uproariously, move you, inform you and, above all, surprise you.

Bought this in CD format and can thoroughly recommend it. Hearing Stephen Fry reading his own book adds something extra.
