The project might be subtitled, ‘In the psychiatrist’s chair’, as each reveals, knowingly or unknowingly, what it’s like to live inside their skin, with their faultlines quite as apparent as their genius.

On completing the interviews, Simon Parke’s comment was this: ‘I feel I know them better than I know myself.’
