TRANSIT - FREEDOM TO FATE
A remark novel in which the narrator brings us into encounters with neighbours, friends, tradesmen, an email offing astrological truths, a writing student etc. Each conversation which has a great wit and a sense of playfulness evoked in my mind the most important questions of who we think we are - how we hold onto the things that are over how we iimagine our 'fate' or making our freedom and are they that different.
The best for me is the encounter with her short story writing group and a man who is asked to talk about a dog he loves.

I have no idea what is going on.
Would you try another book written by Rachel Cusk or narrated by Julia Franklin?
No. Julia Franklin is usually excellent - her readings of Joanna Trollopes books are wonderful and I lose hours and hours wrapped in them. with this book she sounds as bored and confused as me and there are way too many breathy " he said" "she saids"
Would you ever listen to anything by Rachel Cusk again?
Would you be willing to try another one of Julia Franklin’s performances?
Yes I have tried many and they are great.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Transit?
Most of it. I got up to the literary festival part and after that I was completely lost as to what was happening. I had struggled to form any bond with the characters up to that point and have no idea what the story is supposed to be about.
