The Fry Chronicles Book

Actor, presenter, author and director, Stephen Fry combines his intellect, wit and gentle humour, with his amazing talent for the written word in his second autobiography. His former memoirs, candidly charting his early years, were a highly acclaimed international best seller largely due to their confessional nature. A long sufferer of bipolar disorder, Stephen Fry's latest autobiography is equally full of endearing, exciting, intriguing, fascinating and at times poignant disclosures.Fry narrates a dinner with his young friend Ben Elton, who informs him he had just received an invitation to write the second series of Blackadder and thinks he has a part that would suit him. From this moment Melchett is born. Stephen exudes excitement as he describes the most exciting moment of his life as watching Rowan Atkinson performing his role as Blackadder. He shares this 'magical time' with joyous memories of watching the aspiring comedy talents of Hugh Laurie and Rik Mayall, alongside Rowan Atkinson, viewing the contrasting ways of doing comedy, all equally brilliant but entirely different. Stephen Fry charts the major turning points of his life with beautiful and intricate description of the details; sights smells and sounds are evoked as Fry explains a walk on crisp November evening with University friend Emma Thompson who wants to introduce him to one of her friends. This friend had written a song, and Fry describes it as the moment he fell in love because of his comedy. The person turned out to be Hugh Laurie, and that evening saw the birth of their script writing.Stephen Fry describes himself as incredibly lucky to have the opportunities life has given him. I think we are incredibly lucky to have lived in an era of being able to witness the work of this intensely creative, talented and generously warm character.Read More
