Michael Parkinson
Muhammad Ali: A Memoir
Prepare for a ringside seat to witness the four occasions when Michael Parkinson interviewed Muhammad Ali...
The World Champion was God's gift
to the interviewer: funny, articulate
and outspoken, with a fascinating
life story and unparalleled talent.
These interviews trace Ali's life,
revealing its significant phases, as
well as charting the rise and decline
of this veritable kaleidoscope of a
character. Parkinson mixes personal
recollections of their meetings with
selected transcripts of the famous
– and, in the case of the 1974
meetings, infamous – interviews.
They are brought together and put
into context by a sober and honest assessment of a figure whose like we shall not see again.
“This wonderful book mixes Parky's recollections with transcripts of the interviews. It makes for a riveting read about an amazing man.”

Cross The Line
Shots ring out in the early morning hours in the suburbs of Washington, DC. When the smoke clears, a high-ranking cop lies dead. Under pressure from the mayor, Detective Alex Cross steps into the leadership vacuum to investigate the audacious killing. But before Cross can make any headway, a wave of murders erupts across the city. The victims have one thing in common – they are all criminals. And the only thing more dangerous than a murderer without a conscience is a killer who thinks he has justice on his side.
The Alex Cross Series
“...we shouldn't forget that no one gets this big without amazing natural storytelling talent – which is what James Patterson has, in spades. The Alex Cross series proves it.” LEE CHILD
“...I do this for a living, and he still manages to keep me guessing from the first to last page. Simply put: Nobody does it better.”
