Graham Chapman's autobiography is a great read - a book about Chapman's experiences in Monty Python, it is also about his time spent in medical school and as a doctor, his struggles with alcoholism, his acting and writing, his hobby of mountaineering, involvement in Gay Liberation and coming out to his friends and family, and the importance of smoking pipes. This book is by turns bizarre, confusing, hilarious, serious and enlightening and is an overall joy to read!

My favourite quote:

"But lying under the stars with the person I loved, I couldn't think that any bug-eyed monster from another world would have objected. And even God has his compassionate moments, presumably." (p. 132)

Graham Chapman was an amazing man - a doctor, writer, comedian, actor, an early champion for Gay Rights who was unashamed of his sexuality - a wonderfully inspiring (and very funny) man. ( )
