Michael Palin’s diaries begin in the late 1960s when he began writing for hugely popular programs. He recounts how Monty Python emerged and triumphed. From the success and cult status brought by Monty Python, Palin shares stories from their world tours, their stay at hotels recently trashed by Led Zeppelin, their battles over censorship, and how individually the Pythons went their separate ways. Yet at the same time they were working on the now celebrated series of films, including The Holy Grail, many of whose lines are known by heart to a considerable portion of the English-speaking world. The birth and childhood of his three children, learning to cope as a young man with celebrity, his friendship with George Harrison, and all the trials of a peripatetic life are also essential ingredients of these diaries. A perceptive and funny chronicle, the diaries are a rich portrait of a fascinating period.

From AudioFile:

If you love exploding lettuce, silly walks, and verbal horseplay, Michael Palins latest audio publication will make your day. Narrating himself, Palin delivers very personal memories of his childhood, his family, and his charmed life. Palins a respected actor, and his dramatic and comedic skills leave a powerful impression. Especially captivating is his seemingly unpretentious yet impressive name-dropping (George Harrison, Mick Jagger, all of the Pythons . . . ). He also presents his personal insights on the geniuses who surrounded him whilst creating the comedic legend known as Monty Python. This audio presentation offers a plentiful rendering of a remarkably funny period in cultural history. M.R.E. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
