Moab is my Washpot è una delle poche autobiografie che abbia mai letto. La personalità di Stephen Fry prorompe nel suo stile che rende piacevole la lettura anche dei più insignificanti dettagli della sua vita. Come Bildungsroman sembra terminare a metà – Fry scrive della sua infanzia ed adolescenza, lasciandoci alle soglie dei suoi vent’anni – e in questo mi ha lasciato un po’ di amaro in bocca; come stimolo a continuare a leggere, vedere, respirare lo Stephénesque è riuscito pienamente nel suo scopo. Consigliato a tutti gli anglofili!

This book deals with the first 20 years of Stephen Fry's life. Clearly he has always been a smart person, but here we also find his "dark side": he was a compulsive thief, a liar and was expelled from two schools. We also see how he became aware of his homosexuality, although he did try to fight against it for some time.
Funny, sad, oddball - like Fry himself. And really compelling.

I knew very little about Stephen Fry when I read this book, began, that is. He writes in an illuminating manner, the story really feels like he's talking to you in a quiet, intimate setting. You learn about him, and you reflect on mistakes of youth and whatever course your life is heading. It's remarkable how eventful his life has been, what's more remarkable is that the book is as good as it is. It avoids mawkishness, but there's genuine emotion. It's hard to dislike it, to be sure.
