A revealing biography of one of the world's most famous and funniest men.
Adored around the world by an extraordinary spread of generations, from early 'Monty Python' fans to teenagers for whom 'Fawlty Towers' is a cult and who, amazingly, know all the Python catchphrases, John Cleese is the quintessential English eccentric.
Many of his fans see him as the finest comedy writer Britain has ever produced. Others are fascinated by his ventures into psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, even his dalliance in politics.
This is the first biography of this most enigmatic star, the awkwardly tall boy from Weston Super Mare who nearly became a solicitor, until he discovered Cambridge and the footlights. More than this, it is funny, sympathetic and wide ranging story about one of the greatest escapes in history.
