Description

The original bestselling autobiography by the comedian, novelist and national treasure, Stephen Fry.

Moab is My Washpot is in turns funny, shocking, tender, delicious, sad, lyrical, bruisingly frank and addictively readable.

Stephen Fry's bestselling memoir tells how, sent to a boarding school 200 miles from home at the age of seven, he survived beatings, misery, love, ecstasy, carnal violation, expulsion, imprisonment, criminal conviction, probation and catastrophe to emerge, at eighteen, ready to try and face the world in which he had always felt a stranger.

Fry writes with the wit to which we have become accustomed, but with shocking candour too. In an age of glossy celebrity autobiographies, Moab is My Washpot sets the high standard to which others should aspire.

    I felt honoured to be let into Stephen's life by reading this book. As I read it, it was if he was talking to me from the pages. I could hear the timbre of his voice, especially in all the extras to what as written was very long sentences. I love QI and I heard that style of retelling and explanations of factoids and recollections, as he rambled, digressed and retold his life in detail.

    Since buying this book only a few days ago I have found it impossible to put down until finished. I have always enjoyed Stephen Fry in the various shows and interviews I have seen him in, but this was a truly unexpected yet enjoyable insight into his childhood and school years that I think all would enjoy. It was unexpected as far as Stephen's recollection of various private events at boarding school only so far as I didn't know what to expect in the first place. I grew up on a different world here in Australia attending public funded schooling. A fantastic book - one that has brought on a desire to remember my own life and times as a child. Thank you Stephen for sharing this part of your life. Craig.
