Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. Spanning 1979-1987, The Fry Chronicles charts Stephen's arrival at Cambridge up to his thirtieth birthday. 'Stretching from Fry's success at Cambridge, where he met the comic love of his life, Hugh Laurie, to his first forays into television, this is one of the funniest, most generous, most daring pieces of confessional writing published in years. Most readers will want to close the book and give it a hug.' Daily Telegraph 'Extremely enjoyable.' Sunday Times 'Fascinating. Perfect prose and excruciating honesty. A grand reminiscence of college and theatre and comedyland in the 1980s, with tone-perfect showbiz anecdotes, and genuine readerly excitement. What Fry does, essentially, is tell us who he really is. A painfully honest attempt to tear the mask aside . . . we are splendidly better for it.' Observer 'Deliciously gossipy and very funny.' The Times 'Extraordinary, affectionate, engaging, cunningly planned and so crammed with incidental delights. A joyus allegro vivace of infectious comic bravura . . . gives nothing but pleasure. A delicious novel of rise and rise of a brilliant young man, which is filled with such vivid background, such unerring social observation, so many wonderful characters and such beguiling incident.'
