"The Fry Chronicles -- An Autobiography" Stephen Fry The Overlook Press: 438 pp, $29.95 Actor, writer and British humor icon Stephen Fry would like you to know that he picks his nose and pees in the shower. He also can't stand the sight of his naked body. And in case you were wondering, he's a rotten dancer, a spaz on the athletic field and none too confident in the sack either. It takes a mighty big ego to flaunt these sorts of imperfections, and that's the paradox that makes "The Fry Chronicles" such a chatty delight.

Guy Fieri shot back at New York Times critic Pete Wells for a scathing review of his new Times Square restaurant, Guy's American Kitchen & Bar (written entirely in rhetorical questions). Some are even calling it the most brutal restaurant review ever. On today's "Today" show in an interview with Savannah Guthrie , the spiky-haired Food Network star said: "I thought it was ridiculous. I mean, I've read reviews - there's good and there's bad in the restaurant business, but that to me went so overboard, it really seemed like there was another agenda.

I don't believe it! I think Robert Hilburn has actually topped himself. He's got to be the first "reporter" to go to a concert (Ratt/Poison) and not review it ("Parents Find Peace at Rock Concert," April 13). Instead, he interviews parents at the Long Beach Arena's new "Quiet Room." What's next, Bob? Go to a Bon Jovi concert and review how much it's not like a Springsteen show? Oops, sorry. He's already done that. TARIK M. TRAD Montclair
