Summary

'I've realised that my skin colour, and the sensibilities acquired living in a white dominated world, have given me an interesting perspective on a myriad of topics and issues... So Everything is Everything is about the intersection of the personal and the professional and what I've learned. There is tough stuff, but also hope.'

Everything is Everything Summary

Everything is Everything: A Memoir of Love, Hate & Hope by Clive Myrie

'Infinitely more readable than the average journalism memoir, and decidedly more important.' - Sathnam Sanghera, The Times

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. In this deeply personal memoir, 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, later to become a prominent police detective in Jamaica.

He reflects on how being black has affected his perspective on issues he's encountered in thirty years reporting some of the biggest stories of our time (most recently from Ukraine), showing us how those experiences gave him a better idea of what it means to be an outsider. He tells of his pride in his roots, but his determination not to be defined by his background in dealing with the challenges of race and class to succeed at the highest level.

Moving, engaging, revealing, Everything is Everything is a story of love and hate - but also hope.
