TRAN­SIT

7 Days in Dubai - - LIFE - by Rachel Cusk

Cusk’s last novel, Out­line, was short­listed for a slew of awards and her fol­lowup, Tran­sit, will un­doubt­edly draw sim­i­lar ac­claim. It is nar­rated by Cusk’s watch­ful writer Faye, who, fol­low­ing the break­down of her mar­riage, has moved to Lon­don with her two sons. Her life un­folds in a se­ries of in­ter­ac­tions with an ex-boyfriend on the school run, the “evil” neigh­bours in the flat be­low, the Pol­ish work­men gut­ting her new home, two other writ­ers speak­ing along­side her at a book fes­ti­val, the stu­dents in her writ­ing class and her Cotswolds-based cousin, who has swapped one life for an­other.
