"Wendy is a fiery Manhattan author whose husband has just left her for another woman; Darwan is a soft-spoken taxi driver from India on the verge of an arranged marriage.

As Darwan shows her how to take control of the wheel, Wendy coaches him on how to impress a woman, and their unlikely friendship awakens them to the joy, humor, and love in starting life anew"--Container.
