More Fool Me: A Memoir by Stephen Fry

STEPHEN Fry has previously published two autobiographies: Moab Is My Washpot, in 1997; and The Fry Chronicles, in 2010, but has more to tell of his mishaps, high-haps and showbiz adventures, for which countless readers will no doubt thank him, because he does it so well.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve read his previous titles (there is some repetition, for which Fry apologises and he handily directs bored readers to skip bits and to rejoin later), but there is plenty of new material, too, as the much-adored actor, writer, presenter and producer skips through merry anecdotes (the time Prince Charles and Lady Diana popped round for tea, showbiz high jinks), honest confessions (cocaine years) and wonderfully amusing, eloquent observations.

Fry writes with such warmth and wit that — though his undeniable talent and achievements are present on every page — it’s impossible not to sail through this book and feel a real connection with Stephen Fry.
