9780099727415: The Stars' Tennis Balls

A novel about a man getting in touch with his emotions...spite, jealousy & revenge.

For Ned, 1980 seems a blissful year. Handsome, charming, popular and talented, his life is progressing smoothly, effortlessly, happily. And when he meets the lovely Portia Fendeman his personal jigsaw appears complete.

But timing is everything in life, and his life is about to change for ever.

Part love story, part thriller, a gloriously rich mix that only Stephen Fry can dish up to us, The Stars’ Tennis Balls will leave you happy and replete.
From the Paperback edition.

Review:

“A Count of Monte Cristo for the dot.com generation...whatever Stephen Fry does, he has it — that rare, unlearnable quality. When he speaks, you listen. When he writes, you read.” — Literary Review

“Stylish...written up with zest and humour...a page-turner and full of fun.” — Spectator

“A revenge tragedy for our times.” — The Times

“A taut thriller...a talent for terror and suspense-writing.” — Sunday Telegraph
