The long-awaited autobiography of Fleet Street legend, Dame Ann Leslie

Synopsis

The doyenne of women reporters, she has been a star writer for the "Daily Mail" for over three decades and regularly appears as a witty and forthright contributor to numerous television and radio programmes (including "Question Time" and "Any Questions"). She has reported from over seventy countries, sauntering confidently through wars and civil disorders (clad in full makeup and false eyelashes), bringing back reports which have won her numerous awards. But Leslie's life is every bit as remarkable as her career. Born in north-west India, the strongest influence on her early life was an illiterate Pashtun bearer, who saved her life during Partition.Sent to a distant hill-station boarding school at the age of four, she would later graduate from Oxford. After university she began her career in Manchester on the "Daily Express", where she was regarded with suspicion and even hostility for being both educated and female. A year later she moved to Fleet Street and was given a column headlined: 'She's young, she's provocative, and she's only 22'.She later specialised in show business: notable encounters followed involving stars like Steve McQueen, Georges Balanchine, David Niven, Tom Jones, John Cassavetes, James Mason, Marc Bolan and Salvador Dali.

Despite knowing nothing about sport she developed a strong rapport with Pele and Mohammed Ali (especially after she hit him on the jaw to gain his attention). In the recent Reuters/Press Gazette launch of the Newspaper Hall of Fame she was listed as one of the forty most influential journalists in the last forty years and was described as 'the most versatile reporter ever'.

Amazon.com: 5.0 von 5 Sternen 1 Rezension
5.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining, enlightening and informative 15. Mai 2014
Von Jan-Jan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I’ve admired Ann Leslie’s level-headedness and no-nonsense approach in her journalism for a long time, so I was delighted to discover this autobiography.

Her writing style is engaging and she relates hair-raising experiences in some of the most dangerous locations in the world, as well as describing the desperate circumstances and dangers faced by many oppressed people.

She grew up in India, where her story begins and went on to fight her corner in the male-dominated world of journalism. She has met despots, megalomaniacs and extremists – and made studied changes to her appearance and her approach in order to ingratiate herself with them. But it’s not all world politics, some subjects of her stories are from the world of sport and entertainment.

Ann Leslie has traveled to places from which millions of others would flee – if only they could.

You may not agree with her political views, but she’s certainly seen enough to earn the right to those views.

Aside from being an excellent and entertaining autobiography, this book provides a potted history of the second half of the twentieth century. I learned a lot from this book – and expanded my vocabulary!
