A charming collection of little stories collected over the half-decade ending 2020 about people and happenings involving Sydney buses. Some are humorous and heart-warming, others are salutary lessons about life, and one or two are sad commentaries on the human condition. All are accounts of things the author observed over a period of several years when she was a frequent bus traveller.
Most of the stories involve travel from the Eastern suburbs to the Sydney city centre, showcasing historic landmarks along the way. They shine a light on the wonderful variety of people living in Sydney who travel on the buses – for work, university, tourism, school, shopping, or just for an outing.
Book Review by Helen Briton Wheeler
What a delight to read Mary-Jane Field’s, ‘Life and Times on Sydney Buses’.
It is the perfect light, but wise and wonderful entertainment, charmingly written and with clever, whimsical drawings scattered throughout.
Pick it up, read the stories and make your day a little happier.
