Change. The second novel in a trilogy by Rachel Cusk is titled, Transit, a good name for a book that takes us from the first toward the third. Cusk’s unusual prose style and structure for fiction may unsettle some readers. After a few pages, I was reminded of what I liked so much in Outline, the first novel. Cusk offers readers access to the conversations, everyday experiences and stories of a protagonist’s life during a time of change. Thanks to Cusk’s great writing skill, each sentence can bring pleasure to readers who enjoy finely written literary fiction. Along the way, some musings in those sentences can become philosophical and offer great insight into how we deal with the significant changes in our lives. I enjoyed this finely written novel and look forward to reading the finale. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase Transit from
