The Penguin Podcast: Shappi Khorsandi

The comedian joins Richard E. Grant in the Penguin studio to talk about her debut novel, Nina is Not OK

Shappi Khorsandi

Quite dark and very funny, it focuses on the teenage struggles of Nina, who absolutely does NOT have a drink problem. Shappi brings with her a number of objects that have shaped her career, ranging from Morph to Charlie Chaplin, and tells Richard how the pain of leaving her beloved homeland of Iran still brings her to tears. And Shappi makes it quite clear that she is not Nina - OK!
