Made it into work today? Congratulations! This is supposedly the worst day of the year for skiving off.

Why not take advantange of the empty office with a little break to watch Lisa Owens reading from her fresh, funny debut novel, Not Working?


Not Working
Lisa Owens

Claire Flannery has quit her job in order to discover her true vocation – only to realise she has no idea how to go about finding it. Whilst everyone around her seems to have their lives entirely under control, Claire find herself floundering and wondering where her own fell apart.

Funny, sharp, tender and brilliantly observed, Not Working is the story of a life unravelling in minute and spectacular ways, and a novel that voices the questions we've all been asking ourselves but never dared to say out loud.
