Of Art and Isolation

Stephen Fry

It’s not all bad. Heightened self-consciousness, apartness, an inability to join in, physical shame and self-loathing—they are not all bad. Those devils have been my angels. Without them I would never have disappeared into language, literature, the mind, laughter and all the mad intensities that made and unmade me. – Stephen Fry


Writer, Blogger, Kate Bush Fanatic

      1. Oh, there is tons! He’s done a lot in life. I loved his autobiography called ‘Moab is my Washpot’. He also did a brilliant documentary called ‘Secret Life of the Manic Depressive’. I highly recommend his sketch comedy show ‘A Bit of Fry and Laurie’.
