Praise for "Moab Is My Washpot" "Fry is a master of provocative tangents and he remembers with a cheeky wit . . . Delicious." "The New Yorker" "An engagingly rueful memoir . . . Enormously entertaining." Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times Book Review" "This book bubbles; it boils and it bubbles with wonderful language, quick wit, and loopy digression . . . [Fry's] voice is delightfully irreverent, cozy, smart, funny and insightfully honest . . . A great read!" Spalding Gray "Fry, well known for his television roles in the British comedies Jeeves and Wooster and Blackadder, continues to entertain in this fresh and hilarious boyhood memoir . . . His hindsight provides witty entertainment in this gay coming-of-age story that will delight readers . . . With this daring and feisty story, Fry will delight fans and nonfans." "Booklist""The engaging Mr. Fry admits to lies, thievery, homosexuality, excessive cleverness, and other peccadilloes in this boarding-school adventure . . . An author in the long and honorable tradition of English Eccentrics, Theatrical Division, presents his coming-of-age story. With all the wit and Pythonesque antics, his book will entertain the Masterpiece Theatre crowd and others as well." "Kirkus Reviews""
