Description du produit
Revue de presse
Accomplished . . . If Palin's comic genius is a given, this is a more rounded portrait of the decade which saw the Pythons become icons. Our favourite TV explorer shows us the workings of an unstoppable machine (DAILY EXPRESS)
Palin's style is so fluid, and his sincerity so palpable, that it is often easy to underestimate just how talented he is as a comedian, broadcaster and a writer . . . [the diaries] are just too good and he is too modest (SUNDAY EXPRESS)
Delightful and often extraordinarily funny . . . An entertaining and at times deeply moving read (MAIL ON SUNDAY)
If anyone writes a diary purely for the joy of it, it is Michael Palin . . . This combination of niceness, with his natural volubility, creates Palin's expansiveness (THE TIMES)
Palin's steady eye, contemplative bent and instinct for honest appraisal make him the perfect chronicler of a frequently insane period which saw the Monty Python team become the most celebrated comedians in the world (TIME OUT)
A real delight to read (SAGA MAGAZINE)
A slow burn, revealing its pleasures only gradually, and allowing readers the warm glow of hindsight denied its writer . . . This book will make the perfect present for those comedy obsessives of a certain age, who will know exactly what it is long before they have unwrapped it (SPECTATOR)
Présentation de l'éditeur
Michael Palin's diaries begin when he was newly married and struggling to make a name for himself in the world of television comedy. But Monty Python was just around the corner . . .
Enjoying an unlikely cult status early on, the Pythons then proceeded to tour the USA and Canada. As their popularity grew, so Palin relates how the group went their separate ways, later to re-form for stage shows and the celebrated films THE HOLY GRAIL and LIFE OF BRIAN. Living through the three-day week and the miners strike, and all the trials of a peripatetic life are also essential ingredients of these perceptive and funny diaries.

Here's a funny, talented man filled with loyalty and love of family and friends, honest almost to a fault -- how entirely refreshing that someone one has long admired lives up to all the good things that can be said of a person. It may sound mundane, but Michael Palin seems a truly decent human being. If there were more like him, I think the world would not be quite so grim. Many many thanks for releasing the story of (part) of your life, Michael! Thank you and a hearty Huzzah!
I was caught up as much with his family life and watching his children grow up as I was with the spats and tirades from the Python members. I cried when his father slowly faded away, just like my grandmother did. I laughed at the antics of his children, very close in age to myself, doing many of the same things I did, half the world away.
I enjoyed the book immensely, but I have a caviat. I bought it as a Kindle download. I didn't realize that the Kindle version would not include the pictures that were included in the actual book. I know Kindle is black and white, and I would have had no problem with seeing them as such, but there was only one small picture of Michael as a child, and that was it. No other pictures were on the Kindle, no other pictures were available from Amazon. I paid a lot of money for this book, and was very disappointed that I could not FULLY enjoy it. I enjoyed the book, and remembered many of the pictures and scenes that he talked about, but I would really have liked to SEE his children grow up. I would have liked to SEE a picture of his wife. THat's why the pictures were included in the book in the first place.
Buy the book. Enjoy the book. Just don't get the Kindle version.
