Produktbeschreibung
This international bestseller is an “enormously entertaining” boyhood memoir by the British actor and comedian (The New York Times).
 
Since his PBS television debut in Blackadder, multitalented writer, actor, and comedian Stephen Fry has earned many fans with his idiosyncratic wit. In this memoir, a number-one bestseller in Britain, he shares the story of his youthful years in his typical frank, funny style.
 
Sent to boarding school at the age of seven, he survived beatings, misery, love affairs, carnal violation, expulsion, attempted suicide, and criminal conviction to emerge—at the age of eighteen—ready to start over in a world in which he had always felt a stranger. One of very few Cambridge University graduates to have been imprisoned prior to his freshman year, Fry is “one of the great originals . . . That so much outward charm, self-awareness and intellect should exist alongside behavior 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).

Rezensionen
"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
