The following is from the "McSweeney's Recommends" page:
Actor, director, comedian, novelist, screenwriter, aviator ... Talentwise, Stephen Fry is like a one-man Cirque du Soleil. Known both for his big brain, which is roughly the size of Saskatchewan, and for his kindness (also Saskatchewan-sized), Fry is a top-notch human being. Hugely famous in England, he is almost unknown here in the States, which is a shame, because it means that A Bit of Fry and Laurie—the hilarious sketch show he did with his pal Hugh Laurie—is not widely available here. Fortunately, Fry's memoir, Moab Is My Washpot, is available here. Read it. It is brilliantly funny, achingly sad, and wise.
