'Heartbreaking, a delight, a lovely, comfy book' The Times
'Perfect prose and excruciating honesty. A grand reminiscence of college and theatre and comedyland in the 1980s, with tone-perfect anecdotes and genuine readerly excitement. What Fry does, essentially, is tell us who he really is. Above all else, a thoughtful book. And namedroppy too, and funny, and marbled with melancholy' Observer
'Arguably the greatest living Englishman' Independent on Sunday
'Extremely enjoyable' Sunday Times
'Fry's linguistic facility remains one of the Wildean wonders of the new media age. The patron saint of British intelligence' Daily Telegraph

Thoroughly enjoyed this book! Witty and unashamedly honest. Found myself laughing out loud at some of his accounts of his life at Cambridge. An intelligent, talented and extremely likeable man. A legend in his lifetime!
