"Michael Palin's diaries begin in the late 1960s when, newly married and struggling to make a name for himself in the world of television comedy, he began writing for hugely popular programmes, such as The Frost Report and The Two Ronnies.  But Monty Python was just round the corner ...
In this first volume of his diaries he tells how Python emerged triumphed.  Enjoying an unlikely cult status early on, the group then proceeded to tour in the United States and Canada, appearing, like pop stars, at sold-out stadiums coast to coast and on national chat shows.  they even stayed in hotels newly trashed by Led Zepplin, later investors in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
As their popularity grew, so Palin relates how, individually, the Pythons also went their separate ways.  john Cleese wrote and acted in the now classic Fawlty Towers, while Michael Palin acted in an adaptation of Three Men in a Boat as well as creating, with Terry Jones, the memorable Ripping Yarns series."
