The View From The Cab.

Danny Kemp
For the Ladies out there Who Do Lunch. (Not for the prying eyes of husbands who pay for it)
I stopped the cab for a very well presented Lady today in a street just off Belgrave Square. She was going to lunch at a newly opened restaurant near Saville Row, but first asked if I would mind if she did a little shopping with two friends. The three spent about ten minutes in a French Perfumery establishment then another similar amount of time in a nearby bespoke hat shop with me watching the world go past and the meter gleefully clicking over. After that twenty minutes of exhausting labour and with a couple of light weight shopping bags the three climbed in and off we went.
Shopping is such a tiring thing. Is that what you all tell your husband when he gets home?


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.
