Worth its Paperweight in gold!

Stephen Fry leads one gently through a delicious menu of his views on late 20th century British tastes and trends.... Every sumptuous bite tastes quite simply delicious no matter how many times one feasts at his warm and friendly table. Phew....Milton Schulman I definitely am not!!

Worthy of the master

Again worthy of the master not a story, but nevertheless enjoyable, even more so with the master himself reading it.

Well, it's Stephen Fry, isn't it

if you're considering this, it's probably because you like SF's cerebral yet childish humour & you will therfore enjoy
