Hands across the border Taxi! feet
These feet are truly borderless feet. They trotted originally from Iraq. They have reached Taxi! from New Hampshire. Poetically inclined, not afraid of a hike to discover a book feet.

Books EDITOR REBECCA WIGOD
Taxi!, an autobiographical novel by Helen Potrebenko (left, in a 1974 photo), was published 35 years ago. Its narrator says, "it just never occurs to [customers that] we're people and not zoo animals to be stared at:' Anakana Schofield, who contributes to these pages, is organizing a celebration of the book - "a kind of reclaimyour-city literature/recovery project," she says, adding: "I'm especially interested in working-class narratives" - so that a new generation of readers can discover it. It's taking place Thursday, 7;30 p.m., at the downtown public library.
