Leanne Shapton creates an authorly and artistic response to travel, work, and being a passenger—part of a series of 12 books tied to the 12 lines of the London Underground, as Tfl celebrates 150 years of the Tube with Penguin.

"Leanne Shapton has updated the stream of consciousness method of Virginia Woolf in Mrs Dalloway to give us the appearance and thoughts of different passengers—about work, sex, family, what they are reading... Thus you eavesdrop on a hubbub: all that mental life going on secretly all the time." - Evening Standard
