I try to find out what you want to say about yourself, even if you haven’t thought about it in quite that way. I also walk around the house a lot looking puzzled.

Favourite book
A Perfect Spy by John le Carré

Six-word memoir
“I have a question for you…”


  • New York Times bestselling author

Deepest fear
That we’ve amassed enough knowledge and experience to understand where we’ve been going wrong over the past few hundred years, yet we will be too cowardly to change what we are doing.
