'This wove a spell on me' – Marian Keyes
'F***ing brilliant' – Daisy May Cooper
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.
'A hymn to normality and an absolute joy to read' – Sarah May
'Compelling, surprising, funny' – Kate Sawyer
'Bas writes so well about that state of being young and trying so hard to make connections' – Marianne Levy
'Dark, sharply funny and utterly rewarding ... Reminded me of the brilliant books by Kirsty Capes ... Highly recommended' – Liz Hyder
