New Book from Magnus Mills in August

The Maintenance of Headway cover
Magnus Mills the Booker Prize-nominated author who was famously a bus driver before his first book was published, is apparently still plying that trade. He has a rather innocuous commentary in The Independent which while typically clever and all, is more remarkable for its low-key announcement of his new book due to be published in August: The Maintenance of Headway.

The snippet from the book is classic Mills:

‘It’s a matter of procedure,’ I explained. ‘Strictly for the record. You don’t get sacked from this job unless you did what Thompson did.’
‘What did he do then?’
‘We never mention it.’

I can’t wait.
