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.

Staff Reviews
  • In the introduction to The Fry Chronicles, Stephen Fry says ‘I love words… the luxuriant profusion and mad scatter of them’. It’s a fitting way to describe this very memoir. Over 400 pages, Fry takes us on a rambling journey through the story of his adult life, from university years to his rise to fame as a comedian and actor. It’s very English some of the time and very verbose most of the time; as I read I kept seeing visions of a baggy eyed editor crying ‘Really, Stephen? Three pages devoted to how the Houses are organised at Cambridge?’ But what else would you expect from Fry? It also happens to be a funny and honest self-examination from a man who has lived a deeply rich and interesting life, and makes for a perfect Summer read.
