Join us for the second of our Night Owl book club events for Odd Hours, on Thursday, 18th August, at 8pm.
We'll be meeting in a small group to discuss Ania Bas' debut novel Odd Hours - read more about the book below, and an interview with Ania Bas here.
Tickets include a signed copy of the book (RRP £12.99), plus a cup of freshly brewed tea or coffee (decaff available!) to enjoy as we talk about this brilliant read.
Select 'local collection' to pick up your copy from Night Owl. Alternatively please select a Royal Mail option, and I'll arrange for a copy to be shipped straight to you.
About the book:
Meet Gosia. She's a sensitive soul with a filthy mind and problems with intimacy. Between shifts in a well-lit budget supermarket and nights in a badly lit Zone 3 flatshare, she spends hours inside her own head.
That is, until a chance encounter snaps her out of her reverie. Propelled into a series of mediocre jobs, lousy dates and even worse sex, the prickly yet warm-hearted Gosia begins her excavation of the 'perfect' life so many dream of. After all, could there be more to it than she imagined?Raw, funny, mean and moving, Odd Hours is a razor-sharp social comedy about human connection, unexpected happiness, and the many forms of love.
