MOAB IS MY WASHPOTSTEPHEN FRY Book Number: 88228 Product format: Paperback
Our favourite wordsmith here gives us the warts and all of his early life, until the age of 18, and his acceptance at Cambridge. Reading Fry's eloquent, scathing and always entertaining prose is rather like sitting down with him for a good long lunch with a few bottles. His schooldays, family, homosexuality, arrest and imprisonment, the agonies of childhood - all are candidly and eloquently relayed and discussed in Fry's inimitable fashion, his train of thought changing tracks and going off at delightful tangents at unpredictable intervals. Stephen survived beatings, misery, love, ecstasy, carnal violence and expulsion. Reprinted with not great quality mono photos. A very touching and bestselling memoir. 436pp, paperback.
