Michael Palin

Although Sheffield-born Michael Palin found fame as a member of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, his parallel career as one of the world’s bestselling travel writers began in 1989 with Around The World In Eighty Days, the companion book to the television programme of the same name. Similar success was repeated again and again (including Pole to Pole in 1992 and Sahara a decade later), accompanied by sell-out events within Waterstones all over the country. In 2006, Palin then published Diaries 1969–1979: The Python Years, the first volume of three well-received memoirs that take the subject from the storm of Python to the global reach of his BBC travel epics. Over the years, Palin has turned his attention to other writing projects including novels and his non-fiction epic of 2018, Erebus: The Story of a Ship.

There and Back is a new window into the world of Michael Palin, one that sees him navigating the question of just how much of himself to share with the public as he prepares to publish the first volume of what were to become his bestselling diaries. It reveals more than ever the strength and succour he draws from those ever-present supporting structures in his life: his family, his friendships and, of course, the Pythons.
