Moab is My Washpot, CD-Audio Book
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Available now as an audiobook, Moab is My Washpot is in turns funny, shocking, tender, delicious, sad, lyrical, bruisingly frank and addictively listenable. Stephen Fry's bestselling memoir tells how, sent to a boarding school 200 miles from home at the age of seven, he survived beatings, misery, love, ecstasy, carnal violation, expulsion, imprisonment, criminal conviction, probation and catastrophe to emerge, at eighteen, ready to try and face the world in which he had always felt a stranger. Fry writes with the wit to which we have become accustomed, but with shocking candour too.

In an age of glossy celebrity autobiographies, this Stephen Fry audiobook sets the high standard to which others should aspire.

Review by

Usually avoid childhood memoirs, but so glad I picked this up. Incredibly honest and evocative. It brought back all the angst of school-days, of hating sport and failing to get-with-the programme because of being besotted with the unattainable, and grieving for the object of adoration even though they are still there, because they have grown and coarsened out of what they were.No doubt it is an every day occurrence, but I am so grateful that Stephen Fry wrote it down, and with such great tenderness and humour.
