The Fry Chronicles by Stephen Fry.
He's always entertaining and endearing, but the book is so very English it's a little hard for this American reader to follow sometimes. It would have been more interesting if I were familiar with any of the British comedies he mentions beyond Blackadder, or recognized the names of his actor friends beyond Hugh Laurie, Rowan Atkinson, and Emma Thompson. Nevertheless, I recommend it for fans of Fry.
Yes its a great read, Stutz!
I'm currently reading Hitch 22, Christopher Hitchens memoirs. I am eking it out, one chapter a day at most, because it's his last and I don't want to get to the end. I'm about half way through it.
