Description

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.

'Stretching from Fry's success at Cambridge, where he met the comic love of his life, Hugh Laurie, to his first forays into television, this is one of the funniest, most generous, most daring pieces of confessional writing published in years.  Most readers will want to close the book and give it a hug'
Daily Telegraph

'Extremely enjoyable'
Sunday Times

'Fascinating.  Perfect prose and excruciating honesty.  A grand reminiscence of college and theatre and comedyland in the 1980s, with tone-perfect showbiz anecdotes, and genuine readerly excitement.  What Fry does, essentially, is tell us who he really is.  A painfully honest attempt to tear the mask aside . . . we are splendidly better for it'
Observer

'Deliciously gossipy and very funny'
The Times

'Extraordinary, affectionate, engaging, cunningly planned and so crammed with incidental delights.  A joyus allegro vivace of infectious comic bravura . . . gives nothing but pleasure.  [A] delicious novel of rise and rise of a brilliant young man, which is filled with such vivid background, such unerring social observation, so many wonderful characters and such beguiling incident'
Guardian
