Title: Around the World in 80 Days with Michael Palin
Description: London England, BBC Books, 1990. Reprint, Binding: Cloth, Near Fine/Very Good. 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall 0563208260 Hardback In the autumn of 1988 Michael Palin set out from the Reform Club to circumnavigate the world, following the route taken by Phileas Fogg 115 years earlier. The rules were simple. He had to make the journey in 80 days and never use aircraft, only forms of transport that would have been available to Fogg. But if the rules were simple, nothing else was. Fogg brought back a Princess, Palin a lot of Hardcoverdirty laundry and a television series that stands as an unparalleled tribute to man's ability to make life difficult for himself. This book is the story of, and the story behind, the making of the series. Based on Palin's daily diaries it is a full, frank, no-holds barred account of a journey that turned into a Great Twentieth Century Adventure.
