A hilarious collection of the many articles written by Stephen Fry for magazines, newspapers and radio. It includes selected wireless essays of Donald Trefusis, the ageing professor of philology brought to life in Fry's novel The Liar, and the best of Fry's weekly column for the Daily Telegraph.
Perfect to dip into but just as enjoyable to read cover to cover, this book, perhaps more than any other, shows the breadth of Fry's interests and the depth of his insight. He remains a hilarious writer on whatever topic he puts his mind to.

"I do more than invite you to read Stephen Fry. I urge you to. Fry is by turns observer, humourist, reviewer, philosopher, parodist, autobiographer, academic, scourge, clown and, as often as not, an antic amalgam of all these and more, and his variant style conforms flawlessly with each selected role."
"Huge, crammed, wise, hilarious and utterly captivating" ( Literary Review)
"A joyous collaboration of winging humour and sarcasm" ( Mail on Sunday)
"Naughty but terribly nice" ( Sunday Times)
"Appallingly funny" ( Daily Telegraph)
A delightful compendium of writings that perfectly express the wit and wisdom of Stephen Fry.
