Biography & Memoir - Published: 17/Sep/2019 - ISBN: 9780552173728
From the daughter of Muhammad Ali comes an intimate portrait of the heavyweight boxing champion and a final love letter from a daughter to her father.
Through audio journals, love letters and cherished memories, Ali's daughter Hana tells the story of a very typical and yet fully-unique family, the rise and fall of her parent's marriage and the struggles they faced as a family surrounding Ali's loss to Larry Holmes in 1981.
With the decline of Ali's voice, his recordings are important to history as they are to his personal legacy. At Home with Muhammad Ali offers a candid look at a man who was trying to find his purpose in the world as he realized he was coming to the end of his lucrative sporting career, all the while trying to balance fatherhood and his worldly and political obligations. Additionally, Hana tells of the everyday adventures that the family experienced around the house-with visitors like Michael Jackson and Clint Eastwood dropping by. And for the first time, Hana's mother Veronica will share her memories of the 12-year relationship with Muhammad.
At Home with Muhammad Ali is a candid and revealing portrait of a legend, a man admired and respected as the greatest sporting icon of our age. Hana Yasmeen Ali is the third youngest child of Muhammad Ali. She is the author of three books about her father's life and legacy and has been featured in several documentaries and television spotlights on him; most notably I am Ali and The Trials of Muhammad Ali. Hana has written articles for CNN.com, ESPN and Citizens of Humanity Magazine. She was a behaviour specialist working with autistic children for ten years and is now a Realtor. Hana currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Mixed Martial Artist Kevin Casey. Through cherished memories, audio journals and many never-before-seen photographs, this final letter of love from a daughter to her father is also a poignant portrait of the legend, Muhammad Ali.
