In this chronicle of his experiences as a militiaman in the Spanish Civil War, George Orwell brings to bear all the force of his humanity, passion and clarity, describing with bitter intensity the bright hopes and cynical betrayals of that chaotic and brutal episode in European history. The story of extraordinary women who lost their way – their sense of self, their identity, their freedom – and found it again through walking in the wild. My Sporting Life is Sir Michael’s love letter to sport, to the heroes and legends of his Yorkshire youth, to the characters of the international games he watched and wrote about, and to the very idea of sport itself. Introduced at a young age to cricket and football by his father, he rose through the ranks of Barnsley cricket alongside Dickie Bird and Geoffrey Boycott.

But while they went on to find fame on the field, he found a career watching, writing and talking about sport. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I might add that I am probably a member of that fan club as Parkinson is a superb TV interviewer and an excellent journalist.He wrote a sports column for The Sunday Times for fifteen years and has also written for the Telegraph.
