Moab is My Washpot

Front Cover
Arrow, 2004 - Actors - 436 pages
"One of the most poignant, funny, intelligent, frank and horribly addictive books you're likely to read all year."
--"Sunday Telegraph
""Stephen Fry is one of the great originals... This autobiography of his first twenty years is a pleasure to read, mixing outrageous acts with sensible opinions in bewildering confusion... That so much outward charm, self-awareness and intellect should exist alongside behaviour that threatened to ruin the lives of innocent victims, noble parents and Fry himself, gives the book a tragic grandeur and lifts it to classic status."
"--Financial Times"
