Iím a big fan of Stephen Fry; if Iím honest I would happily listen to him read through a shopping list such are his comforting dulcet tones. I also have a strong desire to visit America Ė real America that is, not a few days in Disney land Florida or a quick shopping trip to New York. So when ... Read review

MY MY IT'S AMERICAN FRY Review with images

AdvantagesGreat compliment to the TV series, full of information

DisadvantagesVery heavy book so not ideal to take stateside with you

"Iím a big fan of Stephen Fry; if Iím honest I would happily listen to him read through a shopping list such are his comforting dulcet tones. I also have a strong desire to visit America Ė real America that is, not a few days in Disney land Florida or a quick shopping trip to New York. So when I heard that Fry and America were combining to produce a BBC series in which he gets stuck into the real underbelly of the USA I couldnít have been more pleased. ..." Read review

Come Fry with Me - Stephen Fry in America

AdvantagesInformative and Fun

DisadvantagesNone For Me

"...shown and the fact that Stephen Fry is the center of it. It brings the mixture of wit and intelligence that he is best known for along with a sympathetic look at things that some of us may find uncomfortable. My favourite examples of this are the research facility in Tennessee where they watch how bodies decompose to allow medical examiners to get an accurate time of death, along with the fact that he showed the rich and poor, good and bad just as ..."

Fantastic read - Has inspired me to do the same!

AdvantagesInteresting, inspiring, good value for money

DisadvantagesSome parts were short

"...love America, and I love Stephen Fry! This book is the perfect combination! Ever since I was little, I always had this idea that I wanted to visit every single state, and since reading this book, it's reconfirmed my dream once more! One of the problems for me was that the book just isn't long enough! For some states, there are only 2 pages dedicated to them, and he basically just drives through and drives back out again! But other than that, it's ..." Read review

Product Information for "Stephen Fry in America - Stephen Fry" »

Manufacturer's product description

Britain's best-loved comic genius Stephen Fry turns his celebrated wit and insight to unearthing the real America as he travels across the continent in his black taxicab. Stephen's account of his adventures is filled with his unique humour, insight and warmth in this beautifully illustrated book that accompanies his journey for the BBC1 series. 'Stephen Fry is a treasure of the British Empire.' - The Guardian Stephen Fry has always loved America, in fact he came very close to being born there. Here, his fascination for the country and its people sees him embarking on an epic journey across America, visiting each of its 50 states to discover how such a huge diversity of people, cultures, languages, beliefs and landscapes combine to create such a remarkable nation. Starting on the eastern seaboard, Stephen zig-zags across the country in his London taxicab, talking to its hospitable citizens, listening to its music, visiting its landmarks, viewing small-town life and America's breath-taking landscapes - following wherever his curiosity leads him. Stephen meets a collection of remarkable individuals - American icons and unsung local heroes alike.Stephen starts his epic journey on the east coast and zig-zags across America, stopping in every state from Maine to Hawaii.En route he discovers the South Side of Chicago with blues legend Buddy Guy, catches up with Morgan Freeman in Mississippi, strides around with Ted Turner on his Montana ranch, marches with Zulus in New Orleans' Mardi Gras, and drums with the Sioux Nation in South Dakota; joins a Georgia family for thanksgiving, 'picks' with Bluegrass hillbillies, and finds himself in a Tennessee garden full of dead bodies. Whether in a club for failed gangsters (yes, those are real bullet holes) or celebrating Halloween in Salem (is there anywhere better?), Stephen is welcomed by the people of America - mayors, sheriffs, newspaper editors, park rangers, teachers and hobos, bringing to life the oddities and splendours of each locale. A celebration of the magnificent and the eccentric, the beautiful and the strange, Stephen Fry in America is our author's homage to this extraordinary country.
