US author Nathan Hill’s debut novel ‘The Nix’ is a mother-and-son drama laced with political intrigue, a postmodern sensibility and no small helping of wit. Critically lauded and soon to be a TV drama helmed by JJ Abrams and Meryl Streep, the book’s writer joins Monocle’s Tom Hall to discuss how the story came to be.
