I learned it from a book
John Cleese, aka Basil Fawlty, has signed an agreement to publish his Autobiography the Independent reports. Cleese will work with Nigel Wilcockson from Random House Books who have acquired the world rights to the publication.
The book follows on from his ‘Alimony Tour’ and according to the big man: "it's the perfect moment to look back on my life in anticipation of the next fifty years."
Susan Sandon, Managing Director of Random imprint Cornerstone, said: "Comedy legends' autobiographies really don't come much bigger than John Cleese's. Enduringly popular, brilliantly witty and impressively erudite, he is a towering figure in every sense of the word.
“His memoir will be a major publishing event."
