French filmmaker Benoit Cohen decided, while doing research for the screenplay of his new movie, to become a New York taxi driver. After passing his license, he spent several months roaming the five Boroughs behind the wheel of a yellow cab that he rented every morning from a garage in Queens. This book is the journal of his extraordinary adventure—the story of the pursuit of his “American dream.” The book also includes Cohen’s “on-duty” and “off-duty” experiences of eating at some of New York’s most famous restaurants and eateries. A directory of those are included in the back.
