Everything is everything

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. Thirty years on, he’s reported from more than ninety countries for the BBC. In this deeply personal memoir, he reflects on how being black has affected his perspective on the myriad issues he’s encountered in reporting some of the biggest stories of our time. Clive’s empathy for the individual caught up in large historical events is widely recognised. 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 and later became a prominent police detective in Jamaica.
