By Geoff Young
Inside the Taxi is a superb collection of tales from behind the Kiwi cabbies steering wheel.
The stories come from all over New Zealand and reflect every aspect of life after all, there is not much the average taxi driver would not have heard or laid eyes on There are hilarious tales about body parts (not necessarily the car variety), the drunk and disorderly, the sex-crazed and sex- starved. And there are plenty of side-splitters and eye-openers about the rich, the famous and the linguistically challenged, as well as nail-biting accounts of acts of violence.
Between pick-up and drop-off there's a whole slice of New Zealand life that only the cabbie is usually privy to. In this often hysterical and occasionally thought-provoking collection, Geoff Young has discovered gems that prove that truth is, indeed, stranger than fiction.
