Do you, Edna Constance Bathsheba, take Stephen John Elvis to be your lawfully wedded husband? I did. After many, many years of marriage and many, many children, I've decided it's only fair to share my unparalleled expertise and deepest secrets with you in my new book, How To Have an Almost Perfect Marriage. Of course, the "him" to whom I refer is my current husband, Stephen. You may be aware of his numerous books, his countless television shows, and his enormous intellect. You probably know he spends his time traveling endlessly, attending operas, meeting famous stars of stage and screen, and visiting tribespeople in the remotest corners of the globe. That's if you read all that rubbish he writes on Twitter, anyway - honestly, that man's imagination! If you frequent the Dog & Duck, however, you'll know the truth. Or the Red Lion. Or Kev's kebab van. Because that's where you'll almost certainly find him. Not dining at the Ritz or filming something about wizards in New Zealand, and certainly not at home helping me take care of our five children. Or is it six? Actually, it might be seven now . . . Of course, you can't realistically expect to have a marriage as perfect as ours, which is why I've called the book How To Have an Almost Perfect Marriage, but whether you're a husband-, wife- or divorcee-to-be, or just simply Fry-curious, you'll learn everything you need to know, and quite a lot you don't, about the most wonderful years of your life as these nine chapters guide you through every aspect of marriage from proposal to divorce, enhanced by my own candid diary entries, incomparable poems, and world famous mouth-and eye- watering recipes.
