RaveThe Washington Examiner... it’s hard not to call The Last Taxi Driver a must-read — simply because it’s one of the best novels in recent memory ... All of this sounds bleak, but the book is laugh-out-loud funny ... The story moves at a frenetic pace, and the introduction of a gun toward the third act creates a sense of urgency. But at heart, the novel is driven by Lou’s wildly compelling voice ... a comic masterpiece. But Durkee is after something bigger than laughs ... a wild and hilarious ride filled with dirty jokes. But it’s also a story about a truth we often forget: It’s hard to be a good person. We tend to think of being good as a state of being rather than as a series of strenuous actions and difficult choices. Behind the dark comedy, The Last Taxi Driver is a dead-serious reminder that virtue is a lifelong struggle. Which is why it’s such a wonderful book, one of the best to come along.
