Praise

Praise for Moab Is My Washpot

“Fry is a master of provocative tangents and he remembers with a cheeky wit . . . Delicious.”
The New Yorker

“An engagingly rueful memoir . . . Enormously entertaining.”
—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times Book Review

“This book bubbles; it boils and it bubbles with wonderful language, quick wit, and loopy digression . . . [Fry’s] voice is delightfully irreverent, cozy, smart, funny and insightfully honest . . . A great read!”
—Spalding Gray

“Stephen Fry is one of the great originals . . . That so much outward charm, self
awareness and intellect should exist alongside behaviour that threatened to ruin
the lives of the innocent victims, noble parents and Fry himself, gives the book
a tragic grandeur that lifts it to classic status.”
Financial Times

“Fry, well known for his television roles in the British comedies Jeeves and Wooster and Blackadder, continues to entertain in this fresh and hilarious boyhood memoir . . . His hindsight provides witty entertainment in this gay coming-of-age story that will delight readers . . . With this daring and feisty story, Fry will delight fans and nonfans.”
Booklist

“The engaging Mr. Fry admits to lies, thievery, homosexuality, excessive cleverness, and other peccadilloes in this boarding-school adventure . . . An author in the long and honorable tradition of English Eccentrics, Theatrical Division, presents his coming-of-age story. With all the wit and Pythonesque antics, his book will entertain the Masterpiece Theatre crowd and others as well.”
Kirkus Reviews
