«12 Chicago Cabbies» by Westley Heine


Out of stock


“Westley Heine is one who kept pushing on until he found his path and his voice. Who took the punches doled out by a sick society (and his own demons) and carved out a place for himself in the world of letters. Steeped in the intellectual traditions of Algren, Bukowski, and Ginsberg; his Chicago years were a wild carnival ride through the city’s underbelly.

His journey was by turns amusing, frightening, maddening, and inspiring. This slim volume chronicles the major events of that odyssey. I encourage you to go along on it.” (Michael Corcoran)
