JOHN CLEESE AUTOBIOGRAPHY

JOHN CLEESE AUTOBIOGRAPHY
JOHN CLEESE AUTOBIOGRAPHY

THE RANDOM HOUSE GROUP has acquired world rights in the autobiography of John Cleese. The announcement was made today by Susan Sandon, Managing Director of Cornerstone Publishing. The deal was struck with Phil McIntyre of Phil McIntyre Entertainment.

From tall adolescent (he was 6’ at the age of 12) to giant of the comedy world, John Cleese has led an extraordinary life and enjoyed astonishing acclaim. Now he plans to tell the inside story of how a shy child from Weston-super-Mare, who dabbled briefly with teaching and law, went on to become one of the most feted writers and performers of the past fifty years. His autobiography, like the man himself, promises to be both hilariously frank and frankly hilarious.

Born in 1939, John Cleese joined the legendary Cambridge Footlights group in the early 1960s and then went on to write for the BBC. After stints on I’m Sorry, I’ll Read That Again on radio and The Frost Report on television he joined Graham Chapman, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam as a writer and performer in Monty Python’s Flying Circus (1969). He left after three series, but continued to collaborate with the other Pythons on such films as Monty Python and The Holy Grail (1975) and Life of Brian (1979). With his then wife Connie Booth, he created and starred in the classic TV comedy Fawlty Towers. He has appeared in the James Bond and Harry Potter films, co-starred in A Fish Called Wanda (1988), and also established his own production company, Video Arts. Currently professor-at-large at Cornell University in New York, he most recently toured with a very successful one-man show.

Cleese will work on the memoir with Random House Books Publishing Director Nigel Wilcockson. US rights have already been sold to Crown, part of Random House Inc.

 

HEF'S LITTLE BLACK BOOK

HEF'S LITTLE BLACK BOOK
HEF'S LITTLE BLACK BOOK

Nearly six decades ago, Hugh Marston Hefner created Playboy magazine, which effectively ignited America’s sexual revolution. The greatest living symbol of the Good Life, Hef created a world for himself that most men have yearned to inhabit, if only briefly, just to know what it’s like to be him. In Hef ’s Little Black Book, this universally envied international icon offers a treasury of his often wry and heartfelt wisdom as it applies to the realms of romance, hedonism, ambition, business—and, of course, sex.

Accompanied by tantalizing never-before-seen photographs from his vast private archive, Hef ’s Little Black Book is the gateway to Hugh Hefner’s irresistibly beguiling world. If you don’t swing, don’t ring—lingerie and pajamas optional.

Hugh M. Hefner founded Playboy magazine in 1953. In 1998, he was inducted into the American Society of Magazine Editors Hall of Fame, and he remains unquestionably the most famous magazine editor in the world. He lives at the Playboy Mansion West in Holmby Hills, California.
