In the wake of family collapse, a writer and her two young sons move to London. The process of upheaval is the catalyst for a number of transitions, personal, moral, artistic, practical, as she endeavors to construct a new reality for herself and her children. In the city she is made to confront aspects of living she has, until now, avoided, and to consider questions of vulnerability and power, death and renewal, in what becomes her struggle to reattach herself to, and believe in, life.

I've come to harmonious ease (since "Outline") with her outward ramblings (still, dialog format occasionally bothers me) constantly shaken by inward restraint.

The effect maybe personal, whether to live life in a slow-bleeding-to-death fatalism or a fantastical plot full of contrivances.

Like "Outline", both books are inspiring for writers(-to-be), as if I could come up with remarkable materials from seemingly insignificant experience.

What a bittersweet feeling to finish. I've loved every minute spent w/ the transitory people filing the pages of Transit. There is so much to ponder here. It is rich with meaning, filled with both observation and insight that bears rereading.

An insightful novel - more of a thinking realm than a physical one. As the main character is renovating the inside of her new house she is also looking at relationships and friends and their internal past and present.

Cusk is a wonderful writer with interesting things to say. The narrator, the same woman as in "Outline", has moved to London with her two sons. The book is a series of encounters she has with a variety of friends and strangers. She listens and is revealed.
