The First 20X Years of Monty Python, Kim “Howard” Johnson

This had been on my “To Read” shelf since 1990 (I know because I was using the sales receipt as a bookmark). A biased, glowing look at the Pythons, it is full of useless but amusing trivia, which is exactly what Python fanatics like myself buy these books for. As a history, it’s nowhere near the level of Hill and Weingard’s Saturday Night (a look at the making of Saturday Night Live and its myriad cast members), but as histories of the series goes, it’s about as good as it gets. There’s also a complete vid/bib/discography in the back for those completists out there.
