Om forfatteren

Terry Jones was born in Colwyn Bay, Wales on February 1, 1942. He was a writer for such BBC programs as The Frost Report and Do Not Adjust Your Set, before joining with Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, and Michael Palin to form the Monty Python comedy troupe. Best remembered as the nude vis mere organist, Jones co-directed Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975), and directed Life of Brian (1979) and Monty Python's The Meaning of Life (1983). Along with many Python-related books, screenplays, and records, he has written several non-fiction works including Chaucer's Knight: The Portrait of a Medieval Mercenary, Who Murdered Chaucer?: A Medieval Mystery, and Terry Jones's War on the War on Terror. He also wrote numerous children's books including The Saga of Erik the Viking, which won the Children's Book Award in 1984, Fantastic Stories, The Beast with a Thousand Teeth, The Curse of the Vampire Socks, and Bedtime Stories.

Kort biografi
Fellow Python John Cleese said: “It feels strange that a man of so many talents and such endless enthusiasm, should have faded so gently away,” adding: “Of his many achievements, for me the greatest gift he gave us all was his direction of Life of Brian. Perfection.” (From the Guardian Obituary)

Anmeldelser

En ret interessant selvbiografi, hvor alle aspekter af Monty Python bliver beskrevet af dem selv. Den er fuld af små interessante historier, der ofte bliver beskrevet lidt forskelligt fra person til person. De er bestemt ikke altid enige om detaljerne.
En bog som giver en lyst til straks at bestille det samlede Monty Python
