From the Inside Flap
Whether it's the sudden snapping of bonds between lovers or shopping on Oxford Street, Maeve Binchy finds the unexpected truth in experiences so real that every woman will recognize them. Filled with her delicious humor and warmth, the twenty-two stories in London Transports will delight and captivate as they take us to a place that is far away--and yet so familiar...
...Where having an affair with a married man brings one woman to a turning point
...Where another finds that looking for an apartment to share can be a risky business
...Where nosing into a secretary's life can have a shocking result
...Where a dress designer just had a god-awful day
...And where Maeve Binchy captures the beat of every woman's heart

As regards the stories themselves, this book hints at some of the characters destined to appear in Ms Binchy's later, longer novels. They're tightly-written, often thought-provoking and tend to have the kind of abrupt endings one finds in conversations shared in a supermarket queue or waiting for a bus; they're not meant to be expanded upon by following events, but we nevertheless wonder how matters turned out.
If your life is punctuated by waiting around, for whatever reason, this book could be a gentle way to pass the time.
