An Evening with Ania Bas

Thursday 23rd June 2022
18:00 at Waterstones, Birmingham

Join us in store for a special evening with Ania Bas to celebrate the release of her debut novel Odd Hours. Ania will be in conversation with Jonathan Davidson from Writing West Midlands. 

About the book:
Raw, funny, mean and moving, Odd Hours is a razor-sharp social comedy about human connection, unexpected happiness, and the many forms of love. 

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 flat share, 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?
