A life in the day: four decades of remarkable personalities from the Sunday Times Magazine
Times, Oct 1, 2003 - Biography & Autobiography - 143 pages
Over 25 years the Sunday Times's A Life in the Day column has become a national institution. In that time more than 1,200 remarkable people, from kings to beggars, saints to sinners, have revealed the intimate minutiae of their daily lives. The result is a fascinating portrait gallery of the good, the bad and the notorious of the past quarter of a century. This special collection brings together more than 100 of the column's most unforgettable interviews, from Nelson Mandela, Colonel Gadaffi and Muhammad Ali to Kate Winslet, Michael Owen and Christopher Reeve. Equally compelling are the lives of so-called 'ordinary' people: Roko Camaj, window cleaner at the World Trade Centre, Monara Khatum, a beggar on the streets of Calcutta, Janet Cresswell, a Broadmoor patient. With updates for each interviewee, this is irresistible reading for anyone interested in what world leaders have for breakfast, what movie starlets do all day, and what rock stars' wives wear in bed. In fact, what it really feels like to be somebody else. Book jacket.
