Reviews of this title


"I do more than invite you to read Stephen Fry. I urge you to. Fry is by turns observer, humourist, reviewer, philosopher, parodist, autobiographer, academic, scourge, clown and, as often as not, an antic amalgam of all these and more, and his variant style conforms flawlessly with each selected role." -- Alan Coren

"Huge, crammed, wise, hilarious and utterly captivating." -- Literary Review

"A joyous collaboration of winging humour and sarcasm." -- Mail on Sunday

"Naughty but terribly nice." -- Julie Burchill, Sunday Times
