Today’s Post is different because it’s going to be a BookTubeAThon post and I am super excited.

Book Three: So, Anyway... • A Comical Romp Through the Life of a Legend

So, Anyway… by John Cleese, 2014. Memoir, 400 pages. “So, creatively, I was doubly blessed: constant relocation and parental disharmony. Add to these two gifts the well-established fact that many of the world’s greatest geniuses, both artistic and scientific, have been the product of serious maternal deprivation, and I am forced to the conclusion that if only my mother had been just a little more emotionally inadequate, I could have been HUGE.” – John Cleese As I wrote in my book notes from January, this was “only the 3rd, but my favourite book of 2015 so far”. 162 more words
