Hear Your Driver Deliver The Poem Taxi Tale

  • Taxi Tale0:56

For eighteen years I roamed the night-darkened streets of Sacramento, California driving Yellow Cabs. I encountered many strange and some truly wonderful characters. I met people from all up and down the social/economic spectrum and heard their amazing stories. People from many lands, some of them young and some of them old. Most of the time the cab ride was simply a pleasant and unremarkable trip to my passenger’s destination. Occasionally the trip was anything but pleasant or unremarkable. It was truly grist for the literary mill. Every time I thought I had seen it all, I was surprised; some times, profoundly. Taxi Tales is a fact-based collection of short stories recounting some of my more hilarious, heartwarming and hair-raising experiences. These adventures in Cabland will make you laugh, make you cry and make you cringe. So what do you say? Do you want to go for a ride?
