This is another paragraph Product Description: For the last 30 years Michael Palin has held a unique place, not just in British television, but in the world media. Since the much-revered Monty Python series first came to our screens in 1969 and changed the face of British comedy, he has gone from strength to strength and his career encompasses an award-winning series of children's books, hugely successful feature films such as A Fish Called Wanda and, of course, his travelogues which attracted unprecedented TV audiences and gave rise to a number of bestselling books. Jeremy Novick's illustrated biography is the first to be written with full access to Michael Plain. This celebration of the life of this gifted and much-loved icon reveals the influences which have shaped his extraordinary career.
