#39 - Ishmael Reed on Writing, Fighting, and Muhammad Ali

August 24, 2015

I interviewed author Ishmael Reed about his latest book, The Complete Muhammad Ali, a biography of the famous boxer constructed mostly through interviews that contextualize the fighter in his times. We talked about Ali, parallels between writing and fighting, and the changes the Reed has seen in his North Oakland neighborhood in the 35 years he's been living there.
