    We live in the age of the individual. We are supposed to be slim, prosperous, happy, extroverted and popular. This is our culture's image of the perfect self. We see this person everywhere: in advertising, in the press, all over social media. We're told that to be this person, you just have to follow your dreams, that our potential is limitless, that we are the source of our own success. But this model of the perfect self can be extremely dangerous. People are suffering under the torture of this impossible fantasy.

In two days in a strange country I've acquired a mother in the form of a Welsh-speaking Bird Queen who scares me.

Most interesting of all I'm due tonight to be married by a circus clown to my own sister.'
