Odd Hours is a whip-smart social comedy for those of us who feel that life is a game where someone else has stolen the rules...
The snark of Fleabag meets the relatability of Exciting Times in this topical and unforgettable debut from Faber Academy alumna, Ania Bas. A rare and timely look at the life of a young Polish-Irish woman living in London, Odd Hours explores themes of class, race, sex and gender, based on Bas’s own experiences of arriving in England to an eight-person flat-share, low paid job and multiple encounters with xenophobia.
Bas confronts society’s prejudices with shrewd observation and razor-sharp wit, staring conversations and making readers laugh out loud in equal measure. It is impossible not to fall for Gosia Golab - the unique, prickly and loveable protagonist.
Ania Bas grew up in Poland and moved to the UK fifteen years ago to pursue her career in the arts. She has worked with the Tate, the Whitechapel Gallery and others as an artist and arts organiser. This is her first novel.
Ania will be interviewed by Chris Stone
