‘Hack: Stories from a Chicago Cab’ is Free eBook Today

Hack: Stories from a Chicago Cab by Dmitry Samarov is today’s Free eBook of the Day.

In the book, Samarov tells his stories about working as a cabbie while he was in art school. Check it out:

An artist and painter trained at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Samarov began driving a cab in 1993 to make ends meet, and he’s been working as a taxi driver ever since. In Hack: Stories from a Chicago Cab, he recounts tales that will delight, surprise, and sometimes shock the most seasoned urbanite. We follow Samarov through the rhythms of a typical week, as he waits hours at the garage to pick up a shift, ferries comically drunken passengers between bars, delivers prostitutes to their johns, and inadvertently observes drug deals.

The University of Chicago has the eBook available as a free download through the end of May.
