It is described as showing ‘a film-maker exploring himself, respectfully, insightfully, and sometimes by surprise... on a journey that has the courage to step inside.’

The IT Crowd star – whose second film as a director, The Double, is released on April 4 – said: ‘Faber and Faber has long been one of the most respected and prestigious publishing houses in the country. It is with great pleasure that I can be present at the start of its decline.’

Faber’s editorial director, Walter Donohue, bought the world rights to the books from the Jo Unwin Literary Agency.
