Thrust together on a crowded city bus, week after week, the lives of five strangers unfold unexpectedly over the course of this compelling novel.

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.
