Product Description
 
It has been said that more books have been written about Muhammad Ali than anyone in the world. However, not one has ever had the emotional impact and historical bearing that this new book has to offer. AT HOME WITH MUHAMMAD ALI is a unique mixture of narrative stories and transcriptions of Muhammad Ali's personal home recordings. Through audio journals, love letters and cherished memories, 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. 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 boxing career, all the while trying to balance fatherhood and his worldly and political obligations. In AT HOME WITH MUHAMMAD ALI Hana will share the everyday adventures that the family experienced around the house (so 'normal' and yet not, 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. Candid and revealing, AT HOME WITH MUHAMMAD ALI is more than a family memoir, it's an intimate portrait of a legend, and a final love letter from a daughter to her father which is certain to become an essential contribution to Ali's legacy.It has been said that more books have been written about Muhammad Ali than anyone in the world.

Hana's book,The Soul of a Butterfly, was published by Bantam Press in 2004. Her media contact list is vast and she will be highly sought after at the time of the book launch. Hana has appeared in several documentaries, including oMuhammad Ali through the Eyes of the World,o in which she delivered such a delightful performance that the Sunday Times wrote, oHana Ali is so charming, she should have her own show.o
