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

Parky : my autobiography by Michael Parkinson( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in Undetermined and English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Parkinson was born in a pit village in Yorkshire where he lived on the back row of the local cinema and dreamed of marrying Lauren Bacall, Vera Hruba Ralston and Veronica Lake, or anyone else who would have him. Pretending to be Humphrey Bogart, he became a journalist and a familiar sight around Barnsley and district, riding his bike while wearing a military style raincoat, snap-brimmed trilby with elastic chinstrap and green cycle clips. Thus disguised, he bluffed his way on to the Manchester Guardian, and later the Daily Express in Fleet Street before being found out and sent back to Manchester, when he worked for Granada Television. He eventually ended up at the BBC with a talk show that ran for many years and made him an instantly recognisable face, mainly among people who thought he was Michael Aspel. Parkinson's memoir is an inspiring story, particularly for anyone who hated school and left with two O levels, because it proves that dreams do come true."--Book jacket
