Join award-winning British journalist, news anchor and presenter Clive Myrie talking about his honest and engrossing memoir, Everything is Everything. First published last autumn, the book was an instant Sunday Times bestseller in hardback and will be released in paperback on 23rd May.
As a Bolton teenager with a paper round, Clive Myrie read all the newspapers he delivered from cover to cover and dreamed of becoming a journalist. In this deeply personal memoir, he tells how his family history has influenced his view of the world, introducing us to his Windrush generation parents, a great grandfather who helped build the Panama Canal and a great uncle who fought in the First World War, later to become a prominent police detective in Jamaica.
He reflects on how being Black has affected his perspective on issues he’s encountered in thirty years reporting some of the biggest stories of our time (including Ukraine and Gaza), showing us how those experiences gave him a better idea of what it means to be an outsider. He tells of his pride in his roots, but his determination not to be defined by his background in dealing with the challenges of race and class to succeed at the highest level.
Moving, engaging, revealing, Everything is Everything is a brilliant blend of the personal and the professional and how the two have intersected in Clive’s life and career. It is a story of love and hate – but also hope.
