Monty Python Speaks! Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Monty Python Speaks!

This book tells the story of how Monty Python's Flying Circus came about and how the group managed to write some fo the funniest material of the Twentieth Century. Tempers often flared and friendships were put to the test, but despite their eccentirc and sporadic exterior the Pythons were clearly very concerned with the image and professionalism of the show.

This book has been created out of a seris of interviews David Morgan has undertaken with Terry Jones, Michael Palin, John Cleese, Eric Idle and Terry Gilliam, along with Douglas Adams (author of Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy) and Graham Chapman's partner at the time. Reflection on times spent together are presented, for the most part, in the first person. Morgan has edited and ordered the interview excerpts cleverly to tell a continuous story. He tries to be neutral, but is obviously a fan.
