Thrust together on a crowded city bus, week after week, the lives of five strangers unfold unexpectedly over the course of this compelling novel. JAMES is a teenage junkie on the run, riding buses for kicks; PAULINE is a Greek widow and a slave to her nine-to-five life; WILLIAM is a spoilt-rich-kid banker who would rather be driving his silver Audi; PIETER is an immigrant cellist who escaped his past, but tragedy still haunts him; and ANNA is on the verge of leaving her accountant husband. They all share the same bus route but are on very different journeys. Five ways is a fascinating snapshot of modern urban life and the stories behind the anonymous faces that make up a city.
