Not only did January see the debut of A.V. Club contributor Jason Heller’s first novel Taft 2012, it also saw the publication of If You Like Monty Python… by Zack Handlen. Part of Limelight’s If You Like… series, it offers a guide for Monty Python fans wishing to explore the comedy that influenced the famed comedy troupe and the comedy that Python influenced in turn. We know that Zack spent a lot of time researching this book and struggled to create a guide sure to satisfy both laugh-seekers and laugh-lovers so it comes, of course, highly recommended. If You Like Monty Python… is in stores at all the usual online sources now.
