Much better than Moab,
This review is from: The Fry Chronicles (Hardcover)
Unlike most readers I found Fry's first autobiography 'Moab is my Washpot' to be rather overblown and a bit tedious so I was a bit cynical of reading his next instalment, despite my colleague's insistence that it was great. I surprised myself by really enjoying it and found Fry's life story between the ages of 20 to his mid 20s to be riveting. I suppose it's because it contains references which one can relate to - i.e. his first forays into comedy and some rather wicked anecdotes - if anyone can fail to laugh at the Miriam Margoles one then they're a bit of a sourpuss.
Recommended to those who enjoy a thumping good read.
