Screenwriter on The Thick Of It and Veep, Will Smith's first novel, Mainlander, is set in Jersey, where he grew up.

On this podcast he tells us about the learning curve transitioning from writing for TV to writing fiction, why he's so nostalgic for his Jersey childhood, and why big television dramas like The Wire and The Sopranos are the new inspiration point for novelists.
