Publisher's Summary

Britain's national icon, Michael Parkinson reads his long-awaited autobiography.

From prize-winning journalist to chat show king on a show voted one of the top 10 British TV programmes of all time, Michael Parkinson's starry career spans over four decades.

Now an international celebrity himself, the man from a humble but colourful Yorkshire mining family who can tease out the secrets of even the most reticent star guest, at last reveals his own story, with the easy manner and insight that has kept his audiences fascinated.

His distinguished career has involved working on highly acclaimed current affairs and film programmes. His wide interests and expertise include jazz, film, football, and cricket.

Witty, humorous and blessed with exceptional intellectual clarity, Michael Parkinson's memoir is a joy to hear.

Exciting life - good humor - nice man

Have often seen Parkinson show on TV. Lovely to listen to the man himself telling his story.

A constant from my childhood and beyond. Wonderful listen.

I remember being allowed to stay up to watch Parkinson and seeing him talk to film stars as real people. Parkinson just continued as a beloved institution through so many years. Always entertaining, so clever at drawing people out. I loved hearing about his path to that position and beyond. Especially as I got to spend time with him all over again. A lovely rich voice to laugh along with. Very special. Thank you Audible.
