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.

In his first work of historical non-fiction, former Python and globetrotting buccaneer Michael Palin goes pole to pole in search of one of the most renowned vessels of the nineteenth century: Erebus. Palin’s account vividly brings to life the brave adventurers who sailed the globe and first set foot on the shores of Antarctica. A brilliant recreation of the Golden Age of exploration, it's a wonderfully evocative tale of progress and daring in the face of disaster, and a fine testimony to a ship of quite singular history.
