Michael Parkinson reflects the life of Muhammad Ali.

Sir Michael Parkinson interviewed Muhammad Ali four times and in this memoir you are given a ringside seat for all of the interviews.

Muhammad Ali was God's Gift to the interviewer. Funny, articulate, outspoken with a fascinating life story, unparalleled talent and controversial views. These 4 interviews charted Ali's life, revealing significant phases at different times, charting the rise and fall of this kaleidoscope of a man.

In Muhammad Ali: A Memoir, Sir Michael Parkinson will bring his award-winning journalistic talents to bear on this extraordinary man. The book will mix personal recollections of the times they met with selected transcripts of the famous and, in the case of the 1974 meeting, infamous interviews all brought together and contextualised by a sober and honest assessment of the life and times of a figure that, it is certain, we will never see the like of again.

Muhammad Ali: A Memoir, is a fresh, revealing and personal account of the life of the most important and enduring cultural figures of our age.

About the Author

Born in Yorkshire, Michael Parkinson left school at sixteen with the ambition to play cricket for Yorkshire and England and to write about cricket for the Manchester Guardian. Although, he didn't manage to fulfil the first half of his ambition, he has since become one of the most successful journalists of his generation. He wrote a sports column for The Sunday Times for fifteen years and now writes for the Telegraph. He is also a legendary TV and radio presenter and can currently be seen on BBC 1 in the return of his hugely popular TV chat show, Parkinson.

Every time they met, Parky found Ali the perfect interviewee - funny, articulate and not afraid to share his controversial views - a far cry from today's media trained 'celebrities'. This wonderful book mixes Parky's recollections with transcripts of the interviews. It makes for a riveting read about an amazing man. * The Sun *
