The Pythons

Thomas Dunne Books
hardcover
$60

I don't consider myself a huge Monty Python fanatic. I can't say I love every episode and movie. Hell, half the time I can't even understand what those crazy Brit boys are saying. And I really can't watch that Holy Grail movie ever again. After a dozen viewings, the jokes have worn paper thin. Even so, no one can deny that the six Pythons were comic geniuses. I still can't believe some of the surreal stunts they pulled on screen. Told in their own words, with 1,000 photographs and illustrations, The Pythons is the definitive testament to Monty Python's enduring comic greatness. Despite the steep price tag, true fans will not want to be without this book.
