Madam 'Maddy' Sen returns to India from the US, hoping to jumpstart her life by offering an exclusive women's-only taxi service in grimy, chaotic New Delhi.
Then a brutal eviction turns her life inside out. A stranger makes a tantalizing offer. A new home with new friends and an excellent salary can all be hers. The catch? She must pretend, now and then, to be a male chauffeur to a powerful older man.
Taxi takes the reader on a twisty romp as Maddy struggles with gender, social class, race and a flash of wild romance.
