Description

John Cleese is adored around the world by an extraordinary spread of generations. From early MONTY PYTHON to FAWLTY TOWERS (widely acknowledged to be one of the best comedy series of all time), and on to highly successful films such as CLOCKWISE, A FISH CALLED WANDA and FIERCE CREATURES, John Cleese is the quintessential English eccentric. Many of his fans see him as the finest comedy writer Britain has ever produced. Others are fascinated by his ventures into psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, even his dalliance with politics. CLEESE ENCOUNTERS was the first biography of our most enigmatic star - the awkwardly tall boy from Weston-Super-Mare who nearly became a solicitor, until he discovered Cambridge and the Footlights. More than this, it is a funny, sympathetic and wide-ranging story about one of the greatest escapes in history.show more
