3000:Melbourne/2:31:10pm [Stationary Train]

2009 09 05_0005_1

The timetables for our local train line have changed recently and in the interests of so-called better service it now takes longer as we have to negotiate the City Loop before arriving at Flinders Street Station. And since we were running a couple of minutes late today that meant a further delay just before reaching our destination as we waited for a platform to come free. This has not been an easy book to read. The writing is lyrical and powerful but the story, a memoir, is tragic and confronting. But I was glad to have it with me to stave off the impatience that plagues me whenever I have to wait more than thirty seconds for something.
