The God of Small Things: trees as people, the crowns land, and a class perspective with Dr Samantha Hepburn

On this weeks episode of Book(ish) we sit down with property law professor Dr Samantha Hepburn to discuss The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy. Our conversation includes the legal status of trees, who technically owns the land in Australia, and how growing up in a different class gives you a different perspective. Cheers!
