by Priya, Guns was inspired by the 1970s classic Taxi Driver, but updated for the era of riding sharing. Guns’ debut novel centers on Damani Krishanthan a 30-year-old daughter of Sri Lankan immigrants driving for the ride-sharing app to pay the bills while caring for her mom and mourning the recent death of her father, whose job at a fast food restaurant left him overworked and underpaid. She can barely afford life in the city on the $9 an hour she gets from driving and her frustration boils just below the surface. Then, she meets Jolene, a rich white woman, while giving her a ride and their chemistry is immediate and electric. But, can Damani really trust her? Your Driver is Waiting is fast-paced, incisive, and clever.
