Format: Hardcover
I am ECSTATIC that this is being re-released - I read a friend's copy a few years ago and have been searching for my own ever since. This is a very frank analysis not only of the Pythons but of alcoholism, sexuality, life, death and medical school. It's funny in the traditional "embarrassing if read on public transport" sense, but at the same time a truly intriguing look into the character of a complex man. It's also (eek, I'm English, i don't say this!) very moving. You'll never ask the question "why don't Monty Python reform?" again.

Not your typical autobiography by not your typical writer. A Liar's Autobiography is a now-classic look at the life of Graham, written by Graham (and others) at a time when he felt that, due to his alcoholism, he was not long for planet earth. This proved to not be true (he survived another 10 years and did not die from alcohol-related causes but cancer). At turns hilarious, silly, touching and sad, "ALA" will leave the reader with a much greater sense of the looniest of all the Pythons who was, at heart, a very shy and serious man. By all means BUY THIS.

My mom got me this book for Christmas four years ago, and I could not put it down. Back then, I wasn't really reading for pleasaure, but I knew this book would really get me started! I found Chapman's autobiography to be rather silly, but serious at the same time. He has been my tied-for-first favorite Python (next to Idle) since the first time I watched any of their sketches and The Holy Grail, but this book made me love him even more. I really got to see a different side of this comic genius, and reading about his struggles to gain acceptance and respect, along with his trials when it came to put down the booze, made me only appreciate him that much more. Four years later, this is book is still in my top-three favorites of all time! I would recommend this book to any Python fan.

"Come to think of it, most people like a good laugh more than I do, but that's beside the point!"

I loved reading Graham Chapman's autobiography (I have the original hardcover first edition of it), but I had no idea that he recorded an audiobook of it. Extremely rare to have done this back in the 1980s.

He is as masterful as ever in telling his own story.
