Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Brilliant!"

    Loved it from start to finish. Stephen Fry narrating his own biography is the best! He knows his own story and brings it with everything he wants to put into it and it sizzles. Highly recommended!

    "Well described reminder of the 80s"

    Easygoing and mellifluous. Showbiz and tweed. Great to describe an era thus and Fry does it with aplomb.

    "Honest, witty and a literacy delight"

    Steven Fry is clearly an extraordinary character with a many insecurities and self doubts as he has talent, admirers and friends. His dark side seems at odds with his humour and public image. His writing style is a delight and the fact that he narrated the audio book himself makes it all the more a joy to listen to.

    "how important am i"

    why use all the oed when one or two words usually will do ....being a wordsmith doesn't make you a comedian. ..... smug unfunny and full of self praise.... The age of which recalls was full of great comedians of which he was not or is ....do they really all owe there success to him .....Stephen Fry then as now has surrounded himself by funny and talented people who he thinks he can share the lovey blanket with hoping to stay as close to the limelight as possible .....

    "Well, I'm not really sure. Who am I? Such fun."

    It was 'fine' {hee hee} tending from pity me to look at me. Yes it's a bio and likely a release for you and probably a help for others less, or indeed, more fortunate.
    Well done Stephen you made it and you wrote a bio that was you. I enjoyed much of it but why the verbiage? Does it help? Why repeat, regurgitate, redo and restate so much?
    But I did like it and for all your imagined faults I like you, if that is you.
    Life is so 'demmed' confusing and so are people. Like a human Cambrian explosion, there are so many people and so many personalities to take in. You are right about addiction, it's normal but difficult to get your head around, or even your nose or lungs or liver or... whatever (pretend fake smiley).
    Apart from that did you enjoy writing it should much as I did reading it? Cheers for making the car driving into Falmer so much better. Chin up and chin chin and gadgets are indeed fun.
