The Penguin Podcast: Ali Land on how the human psyche influenced her novel

Ali Land joins Paul Smith in the Penguin studio to talk about her debut novel Good Me Bad Me.

‘The idea of how does a person live with a parental legacy of evil or a genetic imprint that could lead them astray really haunted me…’ 

Ali brings along a selection of objects, including a scrapbook she made whilst working as a mental health nurse and a pair of sandals from Bondi beach, as she explains why she is fascinated by the human psyche and how travelling the world helped her to write Good Me Bad Me.
