    January the first 1980 until the very moment Michael Palin sets off around the world in eighty days.Palin does remain amiable company as a diarist, but I didn t love this volume as much as I did the first Whereas Volume One had the rush and excitement of the prime years of Python to see it through, the projects covered here are ones I m a lot less familiar with and so don t care about as much Yes, there s The Meaning of Life , Brazil and A Fish Called Wanda but there s also The Missiona January the first 1980 until the very moment Michael Palin sets off around the world in eighty days.Palin does remain amiable company as a diarist, but I didn t love this volume as much as I did the first Whereas Volume One had the rush and excitement of the prime years of Python to see it through, the projects covered here are ones I m a lot less familiar with and so don t care about as much Yes, there s The Meaning of Life , Brazil and A Fish Called Wanda but there s also The Missionary never seen , American Friends never seen and A Private Function seen, but many years ago There s also a lot of ...

    I enjoyed this one eventhan the first volume Sure, we all got drawn in to read behind the scenes stories of Python, but these books give so muchSocial commentary, rubbing elbows with famous people, the frustrations and elation of trying to create while trying to be a responsible family man and aware citizen and it s all accomplished with great humor This second volume is so pleasing on so many levels, I may re read his journals from Around The World In 80 Days, which is where t I enjoyed this one eventhan the first volume Sure, we all got drawn in to read behind the scenes stories of Python, but these books give so muchSocial commentary, rubbing elbows with famous people, the frustrations and elation of trying to create while trying to be a responsible family man and aware citizen and it s all accomplished with great humor This second volume is so ple...

    There s probably an argument that this second volume of Palin s diaries is the dull one, charting the period between Palin s most memorable career highlights Monty Python and his travel documentaries Yet this supposedly fallow period one where even Palin retrospectively notes that he didn t seem to know what or who he was produced, among other things, The Meaning of Life and A Fish Called Wanda.In some ways these uncertain times make forinteresting reading than the slightly breakneck p There s probably an argument that this second volume of Palin s diaries is the dull one, charting the period between Palin s most memorable career highlights Monty Python and his travel documentaries Yet this supposedly fallow period one where even Palin retrospectively notes that he didn t seem to know what or who he was produced, among other things, The Meaning of Life and A Fish Called Wanda.In some ways these uncertain times make forinteresting reading than the slightly breakneck pace of the first volume, allowing the reader to dwell on the fact that Palin was at his commercial peak, seemingly knowing almost every major celebrity not least George Harrison who was clearly a closer friend than some of the Pythons and offered leading roles in Hollywood films That he never goes stratospheric seems down to a combina...

    A year in the reading Admittedly I wouldn t be able to read his diaries as novels however Palin s diaries are easy to read and have a wonderful style that allows you to see the history of London through his un celebrity marred eyes Whereas his last installment The Python Years were often laugh out loud funny, this nearly decade is a muchgrown up affair and to be honest the peep inside George Harrison s house, John Cleese s life and Jamie Lee Curtis s kissing style is beguiling The en A year in the reading Admittedly I wouldn t be able to read his diaries as novels however Palin s diaries are easy to read and have a wonderful style that allows you to see the history of London through his un celebrity marred eyes Whereas his last installment The Python Years were often laugh out loud funny, this nearly de...

    I read the first volume of Palin s diaries 7 years ago, having received them as a birthday present This second set of diaries was equally fascinating what an articulate, creative, reflective and humourous man he is

    After his engaging and amusing The Python Years Diaries, Michael Palin brings us the next phase of his working life, in which his time was dominated by writing, producing and acting.As I writer I found this fascinating the highs and lows of the screen and novel writing processes, the endless waiting for other people s reactions and thoughts, and the problems encountered once production begins This is mixed with his continuing relationships with the other Pythons, his desire to do something d After his engaging and amusing The Python Years Diaries, Michael Palin brings us the next phase of his working life, in which his time was dominated by writing, producing and acting.As I writer I found this fascinating the highs and lows of the screen and novel writing processes, the endless waiting for other people s reactions and thoughts, and the problems encountered once production begins This is mixed with his continuing relationships with the other Pythons, his desire to do something different , and his family life The demise and death of his sister reduced me to tears, but the diaries end on an optimistic note, with the start of his fantastic 80 Days Around the World documentary trip.As ever, Palin is witty and a delight to read his style is fluid and chatty and at no point was I bored during these six hundred and something pages Python only fans will no doubt be less interested in this, but Palin fans will enjoy, and those with an interest...

    Not as fast paced as the first installment of his diaries, however still very interesting We get to know a lot about life in the 80 s through MP eyes in this book, especially life in Margaret Thatcher s England We also get a lot of insight at the film industry, and how it works from writing a book, to produce it, film it and then finally put it out there and the endless marketing involved I liked this book a lot, especially because we can see how an idol is actually such a normal individual Not as fast paced as the first installment of his diaries, however still very interesting We get to know a lot about life in the 80 s through MP eyes in this book, especially life in Margaret Thatcher s England We also get a lot of insight at the film industry, a...
