Moab Is My Washpot | [Stephen Fry]

Moab Is My Washpot

a) A fatuous, wasted, degenerate and wholly useless existence captured in delicate, lyrical and exquisitely realised prose. b) Lightly amusing anecdotes and tender reminiscences of the great men and women encountered during a rich, varied and rewarding lifetime, fondly remembered in the tranquil evening of a career of public service. c) The autobiography of a dizzying life fuelled by the lust for power and the search for ever more degrading downward paths of repulsive sexual adventuring.

Publisher's Summary

a) A fatuous, wasted, degenerate and wholly useless existence captured in delicate, lyrical and exquisitely realised prose.

b) Lightly amusing anecdotes and tender reminiscences of the great men and women encountered during a rich, varied and rewarding lifetime, fondly remembered in the tranquil evening of a career of public service.

c) The autobiography of a dizzying life fuelled by the lust for power and the search for ever more degrading downward paths of repulsive sexual adventuring and self-destructive debaucheries: the unrepentant libertine author seeks revenge on his many enemies and tears the lid off the private life of blameless churchmen and librarians.

Fry`s autobiography is all and none of these. Too old to rock and roll, too young to die, the author looks back with bruising frankness at his life so far.

What the Critics Say

"Stephen Fry is one of the great originals. This autobiography of his first twenty years is a pleasure to read, mixing outrageous acts with sensible opinions in bewildering confusion. That so much outward charm, self-awareness and intellect should exist alongside behaviour that threatened to ruin the lives of innocent victims, noble parents and Fry himself, gives the book a tragic grandeur and lifts it to classic status." (Financial Times)

"He writes superbly about his family, about his homosexuality, about the agonies of childhood - some of his bursts of smile take the breath away - his most satisfying and appealing book so far." (Observer)

    "Brilliant !!!!"

    I loved this book, it is my era and I remember the sweets that he talks about, it's a walk down memory lane for me. I listened to this on my way to and from work and often found myself sitting in the car park or garage at home as I didn't want to turn it off. I think Mr. Fry has a delightful voice and it certainly enhanced my listening pleasure and it makes it so much more personal as he is reading his own story. I'm looking forward to the next instalment which is on my wish list.

    "Fascinating"

    Not your average autobiography. Stephen Fry is a brilliant narrator, easily able to hold your interest. Not only does he give us an insight into a childhood that is distinctly different from most people's but he gives us a deep insight into his own viewpoint of his life, the decisions he made, and events as they unfold.

    "Entertaining read"

    Autobiography of Stephen Fry's primary and grammar school years. A genuine account of his early years, warts and all. Well written and beautifully narrated by Fry, its just like sitting down and having a chat with him only he poses the questions and also gives the answers!

    "Boring and uninteresting."

    So disappointed with this offering from Mr Frye, this is the first autobiography that i gave up on and consigned to the bin after listening to only half the discs.
    Possibly the worst book i have ever listened to and definitely the last i will ever attempt from this author.

    Don't know why this should be but that's the way it is.
