An OWN IT! curated playlist released on the first Friday of every month.
If life is a journey, then a bus ride through inner-city Hackney might be one of the most interesting ways to take it. All types of people with different lives and their own interesting stories to tell. What if that journey also comes with a threat? This month’s playlist aims to take you on a journey through the themes, characters and energy of the novel The 392.

THE 392 by Ashley Hickson-Lovence – Set entirely on a London bus travelling from Hoxton to Highbury and taking place over just 36 minutes, the events of The 392 unfold through a cast of charismatic characters coming from very different worlds.
On the 392 are all the familiar faces you might expect to see on any bus ride through inner-city London in the grip of gentrification: delinquent school kids, the high-flyers, the weird, the wonderful and the homeless. These Londoners share two things: a bus journey and a threat. A threat which is ready to blow apart everything they know.
