"Vivid, ridiculously entertaining, and, at times, explosively funny... Cleese is a master of crisp comic prose: his elegant syntax and sudden absurdities would have PG Wodehouse raising a martini glass. So, Anyway... glows with fairness, kindness, gentleness and loyalty." (Nicholas Barber Sunday Express)

"Told with considerable charm and a refreshing amount of candour, the story is one of a vulnerable soul gradually finding a degree of security from behind a carapace of cutting wit... Remarkably warm and generous." (Graham McCann Times Literary Supplement)

"John Cleese's memoir is just about everything one would expect of its author - smart, thoughtful, provocative and above all funny. A picture, if you will, of the artist as a young man." (Washington Post)

"So, Anyway. breaks away from the shallow conventions of the famous person's autobiography... The result is a book that is frequently hilarious, occasionally lyrical and always thoughtful. It is a fine and funny achievement." (Herald)

"Like having a long lunch with an amiable, slightly loony uncle. Who also happens to be John Cleese." (Michael Ian Black New York Times)


The autobiography of a comedy giant.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
‘So, Anyway…’ written by John Cleese himself is an interesting autobiography work of a man who became worldwide known comedian and marked whole new era with his masterworks such as Monty Python movies and Fawlty Towers.

And though his book can be certainly recommended to all his fans, one should know that main emphasis was put on author’s childhood and days he spent in school. Nevertheless Cleese manages to surprise reader with many unknown and unbelievable details of his early days such as fact that he nearly became a lawyer, that he wasn’t popular among his peers or his troubled family relations.

Therefore, it should be said that book is not as comical as one can expect but more an interesting overview of author’s life before he start doing things which eventually made him famous.

Given the scope of book I suppose this is only the first part of his overall autobiography opus, while the second one should cover the part of life which will be more interesting to wider audience.

Still, giving its style, easiness of read and number of interesting stories Cleese introduced about his childhood ‘So, Anyway…’ can be recommended to all those interested in learning some additional (and unexpected) things about this remarkable comedian youth which will surely arouse reader’s attention.

The most important thing you need to know about this book is that it only covers Cleese's life until the first recording of a Monty Python show. Anything else is only hinted at, very briefly. So, I very much suspect that he is going to do the same as e. g. Stephen Fry and going to try and sell us at least another two or three more autobiography books.

I am disappointed, as I thought this book was going to cover all of his life and not only the first part.

Also, I found this book very dull, as it largely focuses in minute detail on very banal and trivial things. Most things he writes are very superficial. Often, when he could get more deep and personal, he quickly switches to the next topic. This would not be a large issue, if there was more information about his actual work. But as most is about his personal relationships to the people around him, this just will not do. I mean, a lot about moving around in a small part of England during his childhood. Minute details of schools and university. Minute details of obscure shows he did prior to Monty Python. A big gap in time (decades!). Then, the final chapter about the Monty Python Reunion. That's it. The book.

Before reading this book, I had a rather favorable opinion of John Cleese, based on some of his better work (Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, A Fish Called Wanda). Now, I just find it difficult to respect him any more. This book is just sad. Almost as sad as that he openly says he only does his recent tour to get the money for the divorce settlement. He thinks he is being funny. He is not.
Not anymore. This is just sad.

wenn man ein Buch von John Cleese lesen, will erwartet man auch bei einer Biografie etwas lustiges und fröhliches. Dagegen ist die Schwarte eher törge und dumpf langweilig. Man quält sich durch die Seiten auch weil es, und dann kann man auch als Herausforderung begreifen, in nicht gerade einfachem Englisch gehalten ist. Schließlich legt es seit Monaten auf dem Kindle ungelesen und daswird wohl so bleiben
