Moab is My Washpot by Stephen Fry
Book DescriptionMoab 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.

Book Review: Moab is My Washpot by Stephen Fry - Reviewed by KateM (19 Aug 2011)
This is a hilarious, raw, utterly candid autobiography that tells the story of UK National Treasure Stephen Fry's adolescence. Fry let's it all hang out in this account of his youth. From his sugar addiction, petty (and not so petty) theft to his first love, Fry is an open book. He's also a wonderful writer, handling comedy and pathos with an ease rarely seen these days. Many of his turns of phrase invite comparisons to P.G. Wodehouse and it's interesting to learn that Fry was an avid collector of Jeeves novels. It's an easy read, though certainly not an insubstantial one.
Author Biography - Stephen Fry
Stephen Fry was born in Hampstead in 1957 and, following a troubled adolescence, went on to study English Literature at Queen's College, Cambridge. As well as being the bestselling author of four novels, The Stars' Tennis Balls, Making History, The Hippopotamus, and The Liar, and two volumes of his autobiography, Fry played Peter in Peter's Friends, Wilde in the film Wilde, Jeeves in the television series Jeeves & Wooster and (a closely guarded show-business secret, this) Laurie in the television series Fry & Laurie. More recently, he presented Stephen Fry: The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive, his groundbreaking documentary on bipolar disorder, to huge critical acclaim. And his legions of fans tune in to watch him host the popular quiz show QI each week.
