THE LILAC BUS

by Maive Binchy. New York: Delacorte, 1984.

This is a wonderful collection of interlocking short stories about seven people who all take a lilac coloured bus from Dublin to their hometown of Rathdoon every Friday night. All of the seven, including the driver, Tom Fitzgerald, have secrets they're trying to keep.

This is a delightful portrayal of a small town and Britain in the eighties.
