In 1930s New York, David Tarniss leads a quiet life as a cab driver—too quiet—In reality he is hiding a dark secret, his homosexuality, something for which he will pay dearly due to the unique circumstances of the time.
A fascinating, if disturbing, story about the challenges that confronted gays (and Jews) in 1930s New York.
Mark on Goodreads wrote:
I really enjoyed this book. It was hard to put down. I finished it in an afternoon. The characters were very relatable. It was not easy being gay in the 1930s. This is a sad but compelling story. I highly recommend it.
I'm being a bit generous with a 5-star rating, but this novella deserves it for a number of reasons. Though the protagonist is irritatingly self-centred, the story is fast moving, empathetic, and convincingly set.
The ending just blew me away completely!
Looking forward to more from this author.
