Stephen Fry arrived at Cambridge University as a convicted fraudster and thief, an addict, liar, fantasist, and failed suicide, convinced that any moment he would be sent away. Instead, he befriended bright young things like Emma Thompson and Hugh Laurie, and he emerged as one of the most promising comic talents in the world. This is the engrossing, hilarious, and utterly compelling story of how the Stephen the world knows (or thinks it knows) found his way. Tales of champagne, love, and conspicuous consumption jostle with insights into Broadway and TV stardom. A feat of trademark wit and verbal brilliance, this is a book unafraid of confronting the chasm that separates celebrity from a young man's personal reality.

The Fry Chronicles

Whilst Stephen Fry makes no secret of the fact that he uses four words where one would suffice and his language is at times requiring of a dictionary, or certainly was for this reader, this is still the most fabulous read! Stephen takes the reader through his journey of youth into young adulthood and introduces us along the way to his acting buddies and some light hearted tales. There is a sense as well of his to be later documented struggles with success. A pleasure to read and I found myself hard pushed to put it down.
