About the Author


Author Picture

Stephen Fry

As well as being the bestselling author of three novels, Making History, The Hippopotamus, and The Stars' Tennis Balls, and the first volume of his autobiography, Moab is My Washpot, Fry has played Peter in Peter's Friends, Wilde in the film Wilde, Jeeves in the television series Jeeves and Wooster and (a closely guarded show-business secret, this) Laurie in the television series Fry and Laurie.

Synopsis of this title

The spirits of Oscar Wilde and Evelyn Waugh glower benignly over this very funny first novel by Stephen Fry. The novel has an ingenious plot filled with surprises and glittering with hilarious, often indecent inventions: a pugnacious faculty meeting that collapses into an exchange of obscenities, the fabrication of a 'lost' pornographic novel by Charles Dickens, and an exercise in intellectual gamesmanship that engages some of the finest minds and blackest hearts in England. Stephen Fry’s sympathetic portrayal of his defiantly unconventional hero makes for an outrageously entertaining debut.
