Comedy of manners meets comedy of errors in a new series for fans of Fawlty Towers and P. G. Wodehouse.
When Jimmy Acorn applies to become the new concierge at Hubris Towers, there are a few things he doesn’t know. He doesn’t know how he’s going to make this month’s rent (or last month’s, for that matter). He doesn’t know why rich tenants would move into a building that’s still under construction. And he doesn’t know, strictly speaking, just what a concierge does.
What he does know is that eviction is looming and a PhD in literature isn’t nearly as marketable as he’d hoped.
So when his interview spins out of control thanks to an infuriatingly helpful bellhop, a grimly courteous manager, and a mounting pile of errands from the condo’s eccentric denizens, Jimmy has no choice but to smile hard, find some allies, keep the puppy away from the champagne, and see if he can carve out a niche for himself in the wildly unexpected world of Hubris Towers.
Hubris Towers is a fresh comedy series released regularly in 45-55 page episodes. Visit byfaroe.com/hubris for more information and to sign up for updates on new releases and exclusive deals.
About the author
Bill Hoard is possessed of two superpowers: he can sleep almost anywhere at almost any time, and he reflexively forms an opinion on any topic within seconds of hearing a single fact. He writes, teaches, ponders, wonders, teaches a little more, and generally makes a nuisance of himself on social media. He suffers from a debilitating appreciation of pipe smoke, and old books, and tweed.
Bill is currently working on his stories and immersing himself in the joys and struggles of intentional community in Baltimore MD.
Ben Y. Faroe lives in community with his best friends in Baltimore, MD. They feast together, drink good whiskey, push each other to do great creative work, and squeeze in board games when they can. That his wife and daughter are lovely beyond compare goes without saying.
