Never before seen or heard Pythonesque sketches by master Britwit Graham Chapman are now captured in Graham Crackers, his last written work. The book describes in hilarious detail his very unconventional life, his exploits with the Dangerous Sports Club, Keith Moon, his thoughts on the Python team, and more.

Graham Chapman--you remember him as Brian, King Arthur, and innumerable characters from the BBC Monty Python series--died of throat cancer in 1989, yet he still manages to write a funny, nostalgic book. It's a pretty neat trick. Graham Crackers is not a sequel to A Liar's Autobiography, Chapman's cult classic. It is, however, a loose confederacy of sketches, reminiscing, and true-life escapades. Here's a memory from the filming of Life of Brian:
Let me say here that the matter of genital exposure is no particular problem to me--I am a doctor after all--but there was a problem in that we had this crowd of Tunisian extras--some 300 people posing as 600--and half of that number were women. And Muslim women are forbidden by Muslim law to see such things. It's absolutely forbidden for them to even think of viewing naughty bits. So when I flung open the shutter, half the crowd ran away screaming! That had a profound effect on my psyche. I'd like to think it was their religion...Yes, I'm sure that it was.Python fans will love this offbeat, informal, delightfully addled book. And everyone else? Try it, you might like it.
