Gilliamesque: A Pre-Posthumous Memoir
Gilliam covers his life: from his childhood in Minnesota, growing up in California, working in New York, and moving to England, which led to his joining Monty Python. And from there to writing and directing some of the finest comedy movies ever. He’s has a warm excitable personality that comes through in his writing. The book is full of his art. It is cool to see his style progress. And the images he picks help illustrate his life story. It’s a shame he isn’t given more credit for his unique vision of Adventure, Science Fiction, and Comedy films.
