Feeding Time

Adam Biles
Thu 24 November 2016,

Each month we invite a debut novelist to read from and talk about their work in an informal setting. Prior knowledge of the text is not essential. Topics of discussion include theme, structure, inspiration and the craft of writing. These sessions are a great way to discover new writing talent and great books.

Feeding Time is the story of a rebellion in an old people’s home – or perhaps, more pertinently, of a rebellion of people who just happen to be old. The characters in Feeding Time are as funny, annoying, sharp, deranged, loving, and infinitely various as everyone else. They deserve dignity, and they know it – which makes it all the more imperative that something is done about the appalling conditions in Green Oaks. This is a deeply humane book about the triumph of the human spirit, and a blast of rage against the dying of the light.

Chosen by The Observer as a Fiction Pick for 2016 and described as a ‘scintillating novel of ideas’, Feeding Time is a debut like no other: a blast of rage against the dying of the light.

Listen to Adam Biles reading from the first chapter of the book below.
