Abstract:

Muhammad Ali's daughter presents a candid and intimate family memoir based on personal recordings her father kept throughout his adult life, detailing the everyday adventures their family shared and their collective experiences with pain, laughter, and love.

"An intimate, behind-the-scenes portrait of a legend, a man admired and respected as the greatest sporting icon of our age, written by Ali's daughter Hana. As Muhammad Ali approached the end of his astonishing boxing career, he strived to embrace a new purpose and role in life beyond the ring. It was a role that would see him take center stage as an ambassador for peace and friendship, while at the same time attempting to find balance and harmony with his many commitments and responsibilities as a husband, devoted father, son, and friend. In the 1970s, Ali began recording a series of audio diaries, mostly in his LA home. Through these private tapes, as well as personal journals, love letters, cherished memories, and many never-before-seen photographs, we discover Ali the family man and see how, despite the complexities of his personal life, he went to extraordinary lengths to keep all of his nine children united and to help others--be they family, friend, or stranger. We also hear of the everyday adventures the family experienced--all so 'normal' and yet not, with visitors such as Michael Jackson, Clint Eastwood, and John Travolta dropping by. Candid and revealing, At Home with Muhammad Ali is more than Hana's family memoir. It is a moving and poignant letter of love and affection from a daughter to a father."--Dust jacket.
