Thirteen years ago, Moab Is My Washpot, Stephen Fry’s autobiography of his early years, was published to rave reviews and was a huge best seller. In the 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.

"Love this book"
Fantastic could not stop listening
Good value and Stephen is very easy on the ear
"Simply; a humorous joy to hear"
Simply; a humorous joy to hear. Will listen again no doubt 👍🏻
Probably enjoyed "More fool me" more but still marvellous and amusing.
"Honest & Entertaining"
I love Stephen Fry. He's honesty about his addictive personality is very refreshing. I could listen to him all day. He's a very talented man who lived through an interesting time and has fought some of his demons, his worse one is still to come and I shall buy that book too.
Couldn't stop listening to this book. Not gonna lie I don't think I could have physically read it , there are some very big words in there lol. But definitely well worth a listen.
"Love Stephen Fry!"
I love Stephen Fry's honestly in this book, his way to 'tell it as it is' was done in such a lovely way. I also loved that Stephen is narrating the book himself. Absolutely love his voice.
"Monolog disguised as an excellent conversation"
A very entertaining book, with some real insights into british society or educational privilege and the consequences on individuals, in this case mostly positive. Also a lesson why those early networks will help the talented excel in their chosen professions.
This is monolog disguised as conversation intending to be an autobiography ; do not expect chronology, it works most of the time because Stephen Fry is a very charming man that can also write well and intelligently, with ease and and a genuine feeling of sincerity.
Stephen Fry is the best reader by far, his voice covers all the ranges and expresses feelings while communicating eloquently and expertly.
Really loved listening and looking forward to the next instalment. What a life he has had.
Stephan fry at his best. Funny, interesting and intriguing. I loved the book and looking forward to the next.
"Fry at his best!"
A wonderful story of the making of the Stephen Fry we know and love. Ups, downs and his trials and tribulations to allow him to create the visual and audible splendours of his TV and film work as well as his literary works created to date. Excellent!
"Great, loved it all the way through"
Can't wait for the next instalment. Anything narrated by Stephen captures you like no other. It's great remembering all the plays, commercials, radio & TV he talked about.
