Sara Pascoe: Weirdo

Fri 24 May 2024
Loading performances

Critically acclaimed comedian Sara Pascoe is joined by BAFTA-nominated screenwriter and bestselling, award-winning novelist Emma Jane Unsworth, to discuss Sara’s debut novel, Weirdo.

Weirdo follows Sophie, an existential Essex girl battling low-level paranoia in her search for happiness and truth.

All Sophie wants to do is act like a normal, well-adjusted person and not say any of her inner monologue out loud. If she can suppress her pornographic visualisations and pathological lying, who knows, maybe she can get out of debt, dump her current boyfriend and try to enjoy Christmas with her awful family?

Sara Pascoe wrote and starred the sitcom Out of her Mind and has written two non-fiction books – Animal: The Autobiography of a Female Body and Sex Power Money.
