Coming in 2014: Driving Hungry (It's a Book Deal!!)
At last! After 4 1/2 years, three hemispheres, ten addresses, hundreds of taxi adventures, a whole lot of remarkable cab drivers and food I'm never going to forget, I finally get to tell the story behind the story of Taxi Gourmet.
Driving Hungry, the book based on my blog, the book you helped support last summer during the great adventure to Berlin, has been accepted for publication by Vintage (Random House), and it's coming out in 2014!
There is no way - no way - I could have realized this dream without your support. The research in Berlin was the missing piece I needed to tell my story, and you helped me find it.
I know it's been a long time since you've heard from me about what's going on with Taxi Gourmet, the Berlin project, and the book, but if you've ever written a book proposal, I'm guessing you understand how long it takes for all the pieces to come together. I'm so thrilled to report that they finally have, and I'll be sure to keep you posted as the book gets closer to publication (we're going to plan lots of fun events around it.)
For now, I want to thank you for sharing my joy, for believing in this project and for helping me realize this dream.
Cheers to the taxi drivers - and cheers to YOU.
