The Last Taxi Driver
The Last Taxi Driver, I found myself reflecting about the insight into human nature that the funny scene captured. Protagonist Lou is a taxi driver in Mississippi working lots of hours and barely making ends meet. His kindness to others allows him to take on the unplanned role of wounded healer, as Carl Jung would describe him. He treats taxi passengers with respect and dignity hiding beneath his veneer of exasperation at the antics from others and his own descent into darkness. Durkee’s writing glistens on these pages, making this novel a real joy to read, especially for fans of literary fiction who also have a fully functioning funny bone. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Last Taxi Driver from amazon.com.
