To Gin, driving a taxi seems the easiest way to earn some quick money in New York. After all she?s smart, street wise and can take care of herself. Wildly humourous but also poignant and moving, this assured novel brilliantly brings to life a colourful collection of no-hopers, money-grabbers, fraudsters, believers and lovers. Gloria (the Cuban lesbian artist), Josito (the child of a jailbird), Alex (the Russian mobster). Kenny (the African-American cab dispatcher), Tailbe (the legal immigrant worth marrying for a green card), Ouagadougou (a man looking to marry for his green card) and the unnamed gun-wielding psychopath all have one thing in common. They all want…the money!
