Author Megan Nolan: ‘I want to avoid using trauma to excuse all bad behaviour of my characters’

This week, bestselling author Megan Nolan joins us to discuss her latest book, Ordinary Human Failings, which explores a family who become tabloid scapegoats after a toddler goes missing from a London estate. We talk about the exploitative tabloid culture and issues of addiction that lie at the heart of the book, as well as what drives people to commit violence, the impact of childhood neglect on adult relationships, and how trauma narratives are too often used to excuse bad behaviour. Catch Love Lives on Independent TV and YouTube, as well as all major social and podcast platforms. Support this show Hosted on Acast. See for more information.
