About the Author:

Michael Palin is a comedian, actor, writer and television presenter. He established his reputation with Monty Python's Flying Circus and Ripping Yarns. His work includes several films with Monty Python, as well as A Fish Called Wanda and American Friends. He has also written books to accompany his eight very successful travel series including Himalaya and Pole to Pole.

Review:

Palin shows himself in these diaries to be an acute observer as well as a champion curator of an anecdote...the best sort of convivial read, like having a gossip with an old friend over a few drinks... Travelling to Work is a delight. It is a book you find yourself devouring in a great greedy session -- Helen Davies THE SUNDAY TIMES Michael Palin introduces his splendid new volume of diaries by saying that he was juggling three careers during the decade it covers... the life it records is so phenomenally varied... How he finds time to update his diary is a mystery. Update it he does though and he does so with fluency, wit, glowing affability and lightning flashes of anger... Weaving between observation and introspection, he comes up with a pithy phrase to describe everything from a Suffolk sunset to the end of apartheid but he sparkles most brightly when evoking the speech and the personality of his associates -- Nicholas Barber SUNDAY EXPRESS Filled with amusing and revealing anecdotes (like the time he discovered Cleese was writing jokes for the Dalai Lama). The book also charts Palin's reincarnation as a television adventurer and opens with him embarking on the filming of Around the World in 80 Days -- Elizabeth Day OBSERVER FOOD MONTHLY This volume takes in a remarkably prolific period... As well as four BBC travel series not covered in depth since he has written separate books on them, the decade includes promotional work for A Fish Called Wanda; the making of Fierce Creatures, a sequel of sorts; the tortuous progress towards getting American Friends, a film about his great-grandfather, off the ground; a role in a Nora Ephron film (eventually left on the cutting-room floor); and a debut novel, Hemingway's Chair, written in only four months. There also frequent rows with the other Pythons about a reunion. As the book ends John Cleese is keen on them putting on a show at the Millennium Dome. It would take them another 15 years to do it -- Patrick Kidd THE TIMES These diaries record an astonishingly successful career ... Yet he never becomes objectionable; he always keeps that saving touch of everyman, if not quite Mr Pooter, a nobody ... These diaries are remarkably good company, always dependable, never upsetting: safely enjoyable, page after page. And that's quite a triumph of tone -- David Sexton EVENING STANDARD At first you think how lucky Palin is to be living his life. Then, gradually, you see the dark side. He connects with you in a lovely way, which is very calming -- William Leith THE SPECTATOR Books of the Year This amiable, intelligent record has a cumulative appeal. -- Christopher Hirst Independent
