Fry memoir to Penguin
20.06.08 | Benedicte Page
Michael Joseph will publish the sequel to Stephen Fry's bestselling memoir Moab is My Washpot in autumn 2010. M.d. Louise Moore acquired the as-yet-untitled autobiography in a one-book deal from Anthony Goff at David Higham, buying European exclusive rights minus Canada and serial but including audiobook rights. Three publishers are understood to have bid for the book, all offering the same sum.
Moab is My Washpot related the story of Fry's first 20 years, and was published in 1997 by Random House, which also publishes Fry's fiction. Penguin General m.d. Tom Weldon said the second volume would pick up where Moab left off, and follow Fry as he went to Cambridge for his university years. Moore said she felt "very lucky" to have the chance to work with Fry.
HarperCollins publishes Stephen Fry's in America in October.
