Parsers with Python

Greetings all,

I am a new subscriber to this list, and a novice Python user.  Is this the 
correct place to ask for advice on Python-programming?

I want to write a parser for BibTeX.  A BibTeX file is a collection of 
entries that look like this:

@book {Daniel04,
   title = "My Title",
   publisher = {Some publisher Inc.},
   volume = 2,
   year  = 2004

Can anyone recommend a parser generator for Python?  I have been 
programming for a few years, but I have never made a parser.  I only have 
a vague notion of what a lexer and a grammar are.  Is there a resource 
that you might recommend?

Thanks you for your time.
