The Maintenance of Headway – Magnus Mills

The Mainenance of Headway is possibly the only novel ever written about the intricacies of the timing of buses. Its a nice light read, examining how the interaction between drivers and inspectors drove each other’s behaviour and exerted power on each other.

Possibly wouldn’t appeal as much to someone who isn’t into transport, but definitely lightened my day and a definite contrast to A Song Of Ice and Fire. Lightened both figuratively and literally.
