Behind the book: I interview me 

I Interview Me about what it was like to interview me, myself and I.

I: I'm I, you're Me.

Me: Oh, right. This is getting a bit confusing, isn't it?

I: True. So we're okay?

Me: I'm okay. Are you okay?

I: I'm okay. So, you think you'll do this again?

Me: Oh yeah. Just remind me, okay?

I: I'd better write it down. You know how my memory is.

Me: You're what?

I: I forget....
