The Fry Chronicles

"I really must stop saying sorry; it doesn't make things any better or worse." Actor, comedian, and author Stephen Fry follows 1999's Moab is My Washpot -- a quirky and moving account of his childhood -- with a new memoir that finds a young Fry navigating his way in the world of theatrical comedy along with fellow rising stars Emma Thompson and Hugh Laurie.
