'We are merely the stars' tennis balls, struck and banded / Which way please them' {The Duchess of'Malfi. John Webster) For Ned, 1980 seems a blissful year. Handsome, charming, popular and talented, his life is progressing smoothly, effortlessly, happily. And when he meets the lovely Portia Fendeman his personal jigsaw appears complete. But timing is everything life, and his life is about to change for ever.

Industry Reviews

"A gruesome romp through the canon of human wickedness" * The Times * "Fry isn't just a good writer as comedians go - he's a great writer by the standards of any British contemporary... gleaming and wit-fuelled... It keeps you simultaneously gripped and chuckling throughout." * Later * "A Count of Monte Cristo for the dot.com generation... Whatever Stephen Fry does, he has it - that rare, unlearnable quality. When he speaks you listen. When he writes, you read." * Literary Review * "Stylish... written up with zest and humour... a page-turner and full of fun" * Spectator *
