The original best-selling 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 listenable.
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 18, 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.

We might not all have gone to public school, or been buggered there but I think every adult will be able to recognise the pains of one's own adolescence from the account (not sure I would have appreciated it as much while being an adolescent myself).
On top of the excellent account and the wit that permeates the entire book, Stephen Fry's peerless command and glorification of the English language is truly inspirational - I wish every language had such a well spoken and compelling advocate!
Am now definitely looking forward to reading the The Liar , which seems to be a fictionalised account of the same period.
I bought this one first and will buy the later autobiography when finished.
I only wish I had half his brains as I would have twice as much brains as I have now.
Cant think of anyone I would rather have on my quiz team.
A very readable book by a e intelligent and inspiring guy.
