3.0 out of 5 stars A soothing read, but...
I have been a fan of Michael Palin for almost 40 years, and I thoroughly enjoyed the first volume of his diaries, which records the rise of Monty Python. That volume has several things going for it:

1. It opens when he is still very young, and so is full of wide-eyed enthusiasm (reflected in his diary entries).
2. It covers the prime Python years,...

This review is from: Halfway To Hollywood: Diaries 1980-1988 (Volume Two): The Film Years (Hardcover)
Carrying on from where he left off in his 1969-1979 Diaries, the 1980-1988 book is readable, enlightening, humourous and a must for any Palin and Python fan.
