The Bus on Thursday
The Bus on Thursday
<i>That's when I literally had thoughts of becoming a nun, because I thought, Well, I'm never going to have sex again. If I become a nun, I would at least have somewhere to live.</i> It wasn't just the bad break-up that caused Eleanor's life to unravel. It was the cancer. And the demons that came with it. Freshly single and thoroughly traumatised from the ordeals of breast cancer, Eleanor Mellett starts a new job as a teacher in a remote mountain hamlet. It's certainly peaceful enough, almost too peaceful. But what's become of the previous teacher, the saintly Miss Barker, who has disappeared abruptly under mysterious circumstances? And what's with all those locks on the door? And what the hell is that bus doing idling outside her house late, late at night? Bridget Jones meets <i>The Exorcist</i> in Twin Peaks. Darkly funny, deeply unsettling and surprisingly poignant, Shirley Barrett's <i>The Bus on Thursday</i> is a strange and wild ride for all fans of Helen Fielding, Maria Semple, David Lynch and Stephen King.
