Clive Stafford Smith with Frankie Boyle: Eternal Clouds of the Troubled Mind image

Leading human rights lawyer Clive Stafford Smith was brought up by an obsessive man. Following his father’s death, through his letters, Stafford Smith uncovered a picture of someone deeply troubled.
In The Far Side of the Moon he sets what he learned alongside his experience of representing a death row client with acute depression. Stafford Smith is joined today by his friend, comedian Frankie Boyle to discuss his taboo-breaking, profoundly personal book.
