I Am Ali, film review: The legendary boxer is still the greatest, even in a flyweight film

Muhammad Ali books, articles and films constitute a mini-genre in their own right. Heavyweight authors and journalists from George Plimpton and Norman Mailer to Gay Talese, David Remnick, Thomas Hauser and Hugh McIlvanney have written extensively about him. There have been several biopics (including 1977's The Greatest, in which the boxer played himself in very arch fashion, and Michael Mann's Ali from 2001, in which he was played by Will Smith) and documentaries about his most famous bouts. Most recently, Ang Lee has been developing a 3D movie about Ali's 1975 fight with Joe Frazier, the so-called "Thrilla in Manila".

Cuba set to stage its first US musical in 50 years

It's fair to say that Havana won't have seen anything like it. On Christmas Eve, a new production of Rent – the smash hit, Pulitzer and Tony award-winning musical about drag queens, homelessness, homosexuality and Aids in Alphabet City, New York – will open at the Bertolt Brecht Theatre in Havana for a three-month run.

The Fall, series 2, episode 3 – TV review: It’s starting to push the realms of plausibility, but who cares?

Just when you think that DCI Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) has nearly caught her man, the makers of The Fall throw a spanner in the works.

Harold Pinter’s archive had British Library stumped – until it turned to Wisden

Previously unpublished letters written by a young Harold Pinter showing the depth of his personal ambition and early devotion to Samuel Beckett have come to light – but could only be dated thanks to his detailed accounts of county cricket matches.

PD James dead: A crime writer who transcended her genre

With the death aged 94 of PD James, the country she loved and served says farewell to a cherished and prolific writer of crime fiction whose talent and insight often broke through the boundaries of her genre.

PD James appreciation: She shot from poverty to the peerage – but remained down-to-earth

Whether it was she or her friend Ruth Rendell who best deserved the title “Queen of Crime,” there was definitely something regal about PD James. She was a Baroness, she often lunched with the Queen and her books were always among the small pile of reading material sent to beguile the royal family on their holidays. She always carried herself with serene dignity. But it never, thank goodness, went to her head. She was far too down-to-earth to succumb to grandeur. She positively wriggled with embarrassment if you called her by her title. “Don’t bother with that nonsense,” she’d say. “Call me Phyllis.”

Historical fiction round-up: Spin-offs open a worthy new chapter for the Brontës

Spin-offs are my least favourite form of literature – they usually mean that the authors can't produce original work so they just live off other writers' backs – but two offerings from the depths of Brontë gloom certainly warrant retrieval from the junk pile.

Stranger In A Strange Land by Robert A Heinlein, book of a lifetime

I have etched into my psyche an obsession with books that began in my childhood growing up in Iraq in the 60s and 70s. For an obsessive reader like me it was hard to get hold of enough English books, so one of my favourite places in all the world was the small library at the British Council in Baghdad where I'd go with my mother and siblings as often as possible to borrow books, hoping that a new shipment had come in so that I might find a new world to immerse myself in.

Islam and Nazi Germany's war by David Motadel, book review: How Muslims were lured to the Nazi cause

While on holiday in Berlin, the German diplomat, Eberhard von Stohrer, decided to spend his time thinking about the Muslim world. He had served as an ambassador in Cairo, where he observed that by fighting Britain and France, Germany had gained an "outstanding position" in the "eyes of the Muslims". It was time to cement the relationship between Islam and National Socialist ideology.

New approval granted for microlight company

For the first time under a new authorisation system, a microlight manufacturer has been given design, production and flight test approval by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
