Winner of Galaxy National Book Awards: Tesco Biography of the Year 2010.
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.
