Chris Hammer's best-selling debut thriller Scrublands is set in the sun-ravaged heart of regional Australia. Chris is a former foreign correspondent and political journalist and has stolen from his real-life experiences to inform this bold addition to the outback noir genre. In conversation we delve into his connections to the towns of Australia's bush, and discuss what drove him to steer his story through the eyes of a PTSD-affected protagonist. This is a slight change in pace for our conversation series as we spend much of our time exploring the writing of the book, instead of the author himself.
