Author information

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. In 2007 he announced his retirement from his ITV chat show and is taking a year off to write his autobiography and consider other TV projects.

Review quote

Parky's book is a joyous, breezy read, as much for the improbability of his early escapades as for his backstage anecdotes about the stars. It is also beautifully written Daily Telegraph
