4.0 out of 5 stars Blessed are the cheesemakers, 5 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Halfway To Hollywood: Diaries 1980-1988 (Volume Two) (Paperback)
I will admit up front that celebrity diaries are not my favourite reading material. before this I have only read two others, Michael Palin's first diary and Kenneth Williams wonderful diaries.
Being a huge Monty Python fan and also having a love for Palin's travelogue programmes I felt the desire to read the two volumes of Palin's diaries.
Thankfully, this diary doesn't disappoint. A diary by its own nature is of interest only to those who write it and as such they tend to be very dull. But thankfully the interesting entries far outweigh the dull ones.
It is fascinating to read of the in fighting and difficult meetings of all six members of the Monty Python team. Eric Idle and John Cleese come across as two people whose only interest was the number on the bottom line of their accounts ledger.
This volume finishes as Palin is about to start his career as the next Alan Whicker and begin his eighty days traversing the globe. Looking forward to the new volume.
