Paperweight (book)

Paperweight (book)

"Paperweight" is a collection of writings by Stephen Fry, first published in the United Kingdom in 1992.

The book contains a wide selection of Fry's journalism, including comment pieces, reviews and criticism.

There are transcripts of several radio performances, including 22 appearances from BBC Radio 4's Loose Ends show in the character of eccentric Cambridge philologist Professor Donald Trefusis, who would appear as a major character in Fry's first novel, "The Liar".

The book also includes the script of a play "Latin! (or Tobacco and Boys.)", an early work by Fry set in a public school, which won the "Fringe First" prize at the Edinburgh Festival in 1980.
