My Name is Charles Saatchi and I Am an Artoholic, by Charles Saatchi & published by Phaidon, is released on 8 September. The book records his answers to questions from critics, journalists and the public, to whit:

Do you think you have messed up anybody's life by flogging off all their work?

I don't buy art just to make artists happy any more than I want to make them sad if I sell their work. Don't you think you're being a bit melodramatic?

More extracts are available on the Guardian site
