This is the book I would like to have written. ST and I have so much in common. Not everyhing of course. She is much, much cleverer than me and much more knowledgeable – and much wittier, to boot. But – we both like buses, and talking to strangers, and looking out of the window, and developing tangential trains of thought.
I got this book for Christmas and unusually for me have carried it about my person until I finished it. Normally I just leave my book where I have started reading it and have five or six books on the go at the same time so I don’t have to carry them. This one broke the mould entirely, as far as my reading habits are concerned. Anyway, I heartily recommend it – she will entertain and enlighten you in equal measure.
