Mrs Fry's Diary, Paperback
5 out of 5 (3 ratings)


Stephen Fry's secret wife speaks out at last...Enjoyed a nice cuppa this morning with a HobNob and Jeremy Kyle.

There was a woman on there who'd been married 16 years without realising her husband was gay.

Extraordinary! Which reminds me, it's our 16th anniversary in a few weeks.

What a coincidence. Stephen Fry - actor, writer, raconteur and wit. Cerebral and sophisticated, a true Renaissance man. Or is he? Finally, his secret double life - the womanizing, the window-cleaning, the kebabs, the karaoke - is exclusively revealed by Edna, his devoted wife and mother of his five, six or possibly seven children.

These diaries take us through a year in the life of an unwitting celebrity wife, and are rumoured to include: - scandalous nocturnal shenanigans - advice on childcare - 101 things to do with a tin of Spam. 'A good diary should be like a good husband - a constant companion, a source of inspiration and, ideally, bound in leather.' - Edna Fry

Stephen Fry is noted for his style and wit, neither of which is absent in this delightful book. It is an easy read and created in a different style than his usual, which lends credibility to its authorship having been undertaken by his 'wife.' Give it a read, and I assure you you won't be disappointed.

Review by

A complete year of diaries entries by Stephen Fry's secret wife, Edna. She cheerfully discusses their children's anti-social behavior, including teen pregnancy and school counseling, her own literary ambitions and shares her poems, and relays life with her husband, window washer and sometime taxi-driver, Stephen Fry. Though she often thinks she has seen Stephen's face on a passing bus and people get excited to hear she's married to him, Mrs Fry thinks it strange that anyone wants to hear what it's like to be married to a drunken, skirt-chasing window washer who only changes his pants with the seasons.To anyone unfamiliar with Stephen Fry, it's still a funny book but you'd miss out on the main point. To Fry fans, this is hilarious.
