The View From The Cab.

The view from the cab
I’m partial to a cup of tea, now and again whilst I drive around the crowded streets of London, but owing to the caffeine, seldom does it stay longer than a passing memory. I made up an anodyne observation on the cruelties of older life the other day, and shared my distress with another Cab driver. I pulled alongside at a set of traffic lights and this is what I said about my dilemma:..”I’d love a cup of tea, but then I’d have to Pee. I hope there isn’t a queue, when I need a ‘W.’ He looked at me in a strange way, and said..”I think you’re mad.” Must have been a foreigner.


About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
