Book Description

Dec 14 2010
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.

I read the first installment of Fry's memoirs, MOAD IS MY WASH POT aloud to my wife and we enjoyed it a lot.

This one was, perhaps, not as emotionally engaging, but Fry has a way with words that keeps you reading.

This book covers the years from Fry's time at Cambridge until his thirtieth birthday. Fry is a busy boy during those years. Hugh Laurie, Emma Thompson, Ben Elton and Rowan Atkinson are part of the cast of characters in the story. as well as other British comics, writers, and TV personalities that weren't household names in our household. (Part of the fun was checking these people out on YouTube)
