From The Other Wiki
In the book, Fry is candid about his many weaknesses
, including stealing, cheating and lying. The book covers some of the same ground as in Fry’s first novel, The Liar
, published in 1991. In that work, public schoolboy Adrian Healey falls in love with a boy called Hugo Cartwright; in the autobiography, 14-year-old Fry becomes besotted with 13-year-old "Matthew Osborne".
Fry also writes about his older brother, Roger; Bunce, the new boy at his prep school, Stouts Hill; Jo Wood, his best friend at Uppingham, and Oliver Derwent, a prefect who "seduces" Fry.
