Re: What are you reading?

Stephen Fry's memoirs. They're all the tweedy, nicotine-saturated, cocaine-fueled, manic-depressive, pleonastic, poofy glory one would expect; I've said it before, but if he weren't 20 years too old and 100% too homosexual for me I'd totally marry him.

That post settles it: I'll need to read that too

ETA: Which one are you describing. Moab Is My Washpot or The Fry Chronicles?

^I'm on the latter at the mo', and it's a lot of fun. I just delight in his writing. He has the same playfulness with language that Wodehouse had, and it's a lot of fun.

Re: What are you reading?

I can't believe I haven't read anything of Fry's -That's a serious slip, I'm sure he writes as well for print as for speak

Thanks

Re: What are you reading?

I did indeed finish TerraFae and it was wonderful. Funny, clever, sad, touching and weird as all hell-- as Squiggy would say, it was dramistic. If you love Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett or blablover5, I suggest you buy it.

Long time since I've been on the board. I'm currently at the end of a multi-year slog through Terry Pratchett's discworld. Three books to go.

Re: What are you reading?

Stephen Fry is awesome whether in printed or film/television format...I've loved him ever since the very first time I saw him in Blackadder and The Young Ones during my teens.

^Indeed. When I am feeling down I take a moment to watch this:



And it helps me to feel my normal gorgeous, squishy, pink, lovely self again.

I don't know. Can you really go that long without a twisted tale of deceit, violence, politics, public school boys, Oscar Wilde hero worship, and filthy, filthy sex, all told a-chronologically? I don't know if I could do it.

Are you seriously asking someone you've met on the internet that question?
