'What you are about to read is a call to arms. Best to prepare for a confrontation.' New York Times Book Review 'A hard-hitting masterpiece. I devoured it.' Kristen Arnett, author of WITH TEETH 'A madcap story you won't want to put down' Rachel Yoder, author of NIGHTBITCH Damani is tired. Every day she cares for her mum, drives ride shares to pay the bills and is angry at a world that promised her more before spitting her out. The city is alive with protests, fighting for people like her, but Damani can barely afford - literally - to pay attention. That is until the summer she meets Jolene and life opens up. Jolene seems like she could be the perfect girlfriend - attentive, attractive, an ally - and their chemistry is undeniable. Jolene's done the reading, she goes to every protest, she has all the right answers. So maybe Damani can look past the one thing that's holding her back: Jolene is rich. And not only rich, but white, too. But just as their romance intensifies, just as Damani learns to trust, Jolene does something unforgivable, setting off a truly explosive chain of events.

Searing and sexy * Vogue * A blazing debut... With a full tank, and rage in her revolutionary heart, Damani drives towards a better world. * Guardian * What you are about to read is a call to arms. Best to prepare for a confrontation. * New York Times Book Review * Funny, angry, beautifully written and a compulsive page-turner, I devoured it. * Daily Mail * A rollicking debut... Priya Guns deserves a big tip for taking us on such an enthralling ride. * Washington Post * A five-star ride, dripping in vivid sensuality: a Taxi Driver for the Uber generation and a heart-rending tale of queer lust across social strata * The Skinny * Fierce and dynamic... Guns's debut immediately marks her as a writer to watch for years to come. * Chicago Review of Books * A crackling social commentary on the social justice movements of our time, the gig economy, performative wokeness and who gets to speak on behalf of the disadvantaged. It's a fast-paced read that begs to be devoured. * Good Housekeeping * As fresh as fiction comes... brash and brilliantly inventive... Honest, fiery and fearless, Your Driver is Waiting is a whip-smart, wild ride of a novel. * Love Reading * A gripping social satire... A fast-paced pageturner sure to keep you hooked until the very last word. * Diva Magazine * A remarkable piece of writing... A fast-paced narrative with bite and, above all, Damani - smart, funny, brave and feral - a character not soon forgotten. * Toronto Star * Travis Bickle, meet Toni Morrison... It's rare for a writer to marry such deep social consciousness with a comic, sultry romance, rarer still to pull that off in a way that satisfies and provokes the reader. * LA Times * A sharp, satisfying read with characters worth noticing and biting commentary on capitalism, community, allyship * Chicago Review of Books *
