“It was heartening to see how many people bought and enjoyed the first edition of the book, especially as all the royalties go to The Big Issue,” said the book’s creator and editor Jane Graham.
“Over the years I have interviewed almost 800 famous high achievers for this slot. I’ve discovered a lot about human nature and how we respond to fame, wealth and power.
“I’ve also learned some salutary lessons, mainly: the love of your friends and family will mean more to you than a high profile as you grow older; don’t let your time run out before asking your parents and grandparents lots of questions, never give up; and duffel coats are punishingly hot when playing indoor gigs (thanks Jarvis).”
