9780099471554: Stars' Tennis Balls

A novel about a man getting in touch with his emotions...spite, jealousy & revenge.

For Ned, 1980 seems a blissful year. Handsome, charming, popular and talented, his life is progressing smoothly, effortlessly, happily. And when he meets the lovely Portia Fendeman his personal jigsaw appears complete.

But timing is everything in life, and his life is about to change for ever.

Part love story, part thriller, a gloriously rich mix that only Stephen Fry can dish up to us, The Stars’ Tennis Balls will leave you happy and replete.

About the Author:

As well as being the bestselling author of four novels, The Stars' Tennis Balls, Making History, The Hippopotamus, and The Liar, and the first volume of his autobiography, Moab is My Washpot, Fry has 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.

Review:

“A Count of Monte Cristo for the dot.com generation...whatever Stephen Fry does, he has it — that rare, unlearnable quality. When he speaks, you listen. When he writes, you read.” — Literary Review

“Stylish...written up with zest and humour...a page-turner and full of fun.” — Spectator

“A revenge tragedy for our times.” — The Times

“A taut thriller...a talent for terror and suspense-writing.” — Sunday Telegraph
