In his terse new tour de force of a tale, Mills gives history a shake, and you'll never guess what the fallout is.

The competition is friendly but conditions are extreme. To get through the arid, lifeless landscape, both teams must learn to make sacrifices, sacrifices that will change just about everything

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Magnus Mills' brilliant short novel he transports us into the bizarre world of the bus drivers who take us to work, to the supermarket, to the match and home again. It is a strange but all too real universe in which the timetable and the maintenance of headway are sacred, but where the routes can change with a click of an inspector's fingers and the helpless passengers are secondary. The journey will seem as familiar as your regular route, but then Magnus Mills shows you how it is fine to be a little bit late but utterly unforgivable to be a moment early - container
