The Capitol Expressway by Richard Siciliano is a fictional look at the social issues of today, told through the eyes of a man trying to come to terms with the world around him and the current state of his life. The man starts out in hospital, dreaming of his life, his home and a woman called Janie. He had a good job and made good money, but it seems that he wasn't entirely satisfied with his life and wonders what it could have been like if things were different. When he wakes up, he is faced with doctors and officials trying to decide what to do with him. I think this is reflective of his views, where he feels trapped and is unable to decide the course of his own life.
Richard Siciliano has created an interesting story in The Capitol Expressway, using fiction to debate real issues. I think that too many people don't listen to the arguments on both sides and that this could be a way of getting a message across without it devolving into a fight. Whether you agree with the viewpoints or not, there will be many readers who can relate to this story. I think a lot of people feel under pressure and trapped, in a sense, by the actions of higher ups. I think this could do well on the market, but this book might be somewhat niche in terms of readership. The Capitol Expressway by Richard Siciliano is well written though and worth reading.
