Book Review: Stephen Fry in America

Stephen Fry (Hardback) Harper Collins, RRP £20  In a beautifully illustrated companion to the BBC series, one of Britain’s favourite comedians winds his way across the states in a London black cab. Stephen has attempted to penetrate everyday American life in all its diversity, and each chapter gives us a fascinating insight into a few selected aspects of a state, thereby succeeding in giving us a real taste of America – and one that we possibly hadn’t expected. The varied characters that he meets along the way are what really jump out, bringing the author’s journey to life and, very often, a smile to your face. The stunning landscapes are not left out, and each chapter benefits from a handy fact box and some great images. There’s even a couple of quizzes at the back to test how much you’ve learnt. You can’t help but share Stephen’s sheer delight in the country. Ben Jones
