Publisher Description

______________________________
The original bestselling autobiography by comedian, novelist and national treasure Stephen Fry.

Few people serve time in prison before studying at Cambridge. You might be surprised to know that Stephen Fry is one of them.

Moab is My Washpot, the remarkable story of Stephen Fry's tumultuous early life, is by turns funny, shocking, tender, delicious, sad, lyrical, bruisingly frank and addictively readable.

It's the story of a boy sent to a boarding school 200 miles from home at the age of seven, who survives 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 and warmth which have become his hallmark, but with shocking candour too. For anyone seeking to understand one of Britain's greatest cultural treasures, this book is utterly essential reading.

Pat the Potter ,

Stephen all the way.

This book was a real page turner, in fact on numerous occasions I turned a couple of pages, just escape Stephen’s waffling. It gives Roget a run for his money as Stephen plies his trade in wordsmanship ad nauseum. I bought this book on the back of TV’s Q.I. but soon realised that half an hour a week was more than enough, a whole book nearly Fryed my brain.
