The characters in this superb book of short stories by Brunel undergrads range from a self-harming schoolboy to a Buddhist monk in Thailand; from cheating husbands to a mother hell-bent on plastic surgery. You’ll also find ghosts, broken relationships, loss of religious faith and a devastating flood in Burma, as well as fantasy fiction including a sea witch, a warrior girl who turns into a wolfhound and warring squirrels. You’ll come across quite a few crazies too, including a pathological liar, a serial killer, a boy stalker and a man whose itch gets so out of control he loses it completely.

8 MINUTES IDLE In Cinemas Now

8-Minutes-Idle

8 Minutes Idle is a darkly romantic comedy about the perils and traumas of your first job – when enforced promotion, murderous parents, and homelessness get in the way of true love. Adapted by Brunel’s very own Matt Thorne from his novel, it tells the story of twenty-something Dan Thomas, who finds himself kicked out of the family home and faced with no option but to secretly move into the office where he works. It’s a funny, irreverent and moving UK film that combines a US indie vibe with a very British sense of humour. Watch the trailer here:
