Reviews of : A Face in the Crowd by Kerry Wilkinson PDF Book
Inside this Book – I’m not sure if there are many things more humiliating than looking at a rolly- eyed bus driver and saying, ‘Don’t you recognise me?’ He has tufty gingery hair and is wearing the weary expression of a man who can’t wait to finish his shift. I get on this bus twice a day, five days a week. He drives it three or four times of those ten journeys. We do not know one another, but there’s still indignity in that I recognise him, while he’s sure he’s never once set eyes on me. ‘It’s two-twenty,’ he says with yet another roll of the eyes. I can practically hear his thoughts. Not another nutter… ‘I’m not trying it on,’ I reply, ‘I really do have a monthly pass. I use it every day. I was hoping you’d know me…?’ I tail off, knowing I’ve lost the argument. The person behind me in the queue to get on shuffles and sighs. I’m one of those people. The ones who can’t simply get on a bus without causing trouble. My purse gives no clues as to where the pass could be. I always leave it in the front window section, precisely so that it’s impossible to lose. It’s not there and neither is it in that compartment. ‘Two-twenty or you’ll have to get off,’ he says. I half turn, ready to get off, but it’s at that moment the rain starts to thrash the windscreen like a kid playing whack-a-mole at the fair. Losing something is surely one of the worst feelings in the world. I’ve known real loss and pain, but there’s something about the way a person’s stomach sinks when a valued item has gone astray.
Inside this book –A Face in the Crowd PDF Book by Kerry Wilkinson – I seem to spend much of my life fretting over the amount of space I have on public transport. I’ve caught myself dreaming about the number 24 bus in the past, where I’ve got on and found it empty. Then I’ve realised there’s no driver and that I’m naked. If I were to seek out a therapist, I’m sure it would be a signal for some sort of mental anxiety – that’s what dreams always seem to be. I wake up panicked and confused, before cursing myself for being so stupid. It’s only a bus. On the train this morning, I have a double seat to myself. There’s someone talking far too loudly on his phone across the aisle, but there’s always one. He’s telling someone that he’s not going to be effing walked all over by that effing slag and her effing husband. The woman in the seat in front of him catches my eye and we share a silent moment of knowing. I remember Ben having shouting fits like this when he’d had a bad day at work. I worried about this journey for so long. The price of train tickets seems to be harder to figure out than quantum mechanics. Apparently, they are cheapest exactly twelve weeks before a travel date, so I poached them online for the lowest price as soon as they went live. It seems so silly now, with all those thousands of pounds in that envelope. The train chunters into a tunnel, thrusting the carriage into darkness as the rattling of the rails thunders up a gear. The sound eclipses the bellowing of the man, who has probably lost phone signal anyway. I close my eyes and listen to the bounding thump of the wheels rushing across the rails. This isn’t the first time I’ve been on a train since what happened to Ben. I wondered if it would be hard, if I’d break down and demand to be let off at the nearest station, but it wasn’t like that at all.
