A world exists on the nighttime streets that the average person cannot envision. Taxi driver Peter McSherry recounts tales of his thirty years of experience driving cabs at night on the hard-bitten streets of Canada's largest city. Drunks, punks, con artists, hookers, pimps, drug addicts, drug pushers, thugs, nymphomaniacs, snakes, politicians, celebrities...he's experienced them all. McSherry serves up his stories with forthrightness, humour, and the occasional dash of cynicism. In this well-written and street-smart book, the author tells the rest of us about a world we can only imagine -- if we dare.
Peter McSherry's checkered career has equipped him with an extraordinary insight into the street, crime, and criminals. He has been a high school teacher, a truck driver, a taxi driver, and a freelance writer. The Big Red Fox is the product of McSherry's many years of research and his lifetime of interest in Norman "Red" Ryan.
