THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF IRELAND’S GREATEST LIVING GENIUS
‘The funniest book I’ve ever read’
‘The Spinal Tap of Irish Literature’
ALSO THE IRISH TIMES
'Snort-fartingly, belch-inducingly, buttock-clenchingly, fart-snortingly, cerebellum-throbbingly droll'
‘It is not for me to draw parallels between my own life and that of Christ. But ponder this: I entered public life in millennial times. I wrote my masterpiece in a two hour burst after a twenty nine year gestation period. And true, Christ was crucified while I was merely held on remand, but I'm willing to bet he experienced similar difficulties getting the Bible published. This is the trouble with genius. When the film rights are eventually sold it can often be up to two thousand years too late for the author to cash in.’
Mr. Fry didn’t actually say that. But he would have if he’d thought of it.
