Award-winning journalist Ray Martin is one Australia's most loved personalities. It seems he's been everywhere and met everybody, for 60 Minutes and a range of ABC and Channel 9 shows. So, who are his favourites? And what was Audrey Hepburn or Prince Charles or Madonna really like? That's what people always ask Ray and that's why he's written this book. Ray's Favourites brings together the most remarkable of these interviews, offering an intriguing insight into some truly extraordinary celebrities - Dustin Hoffman talking about sex, Jane Fonda talking about God, some poetry from Ronnie Biggs the Great Train Robber and some wisdom from Patrick Dodson, the father of reconciliation. Here, too, are the last interviews with Sir Donald Bradman, Fred Hollows and Kerry Packer. The comedy brilliance of Billy Crystal, Robin Williams and Peter Cook. The studio body-language when Bob Hawke and Paul Keating came together for the first and only time. And much more. Revealing, perceptive and inspiring, Ray's Favourites is compulsive reading. Enjoy the journey.
