An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.
Along with writing stories and essays for such publications as Harper’s, the Sun, and Zoetrope, Mississippian Lee Durkee also has two novels under his belt, Rides of the Midway and the newly released The Last Taxi Driver. Today, Durkee discusses the latter novel, which George Saunders calls a “wild, funny, poetic fever-dream that will change the way you think about America…I loved this book and felt jangled and inspired and changed by it.”
