Buckle yourself in for a trip through the streets of San Francisco with poet, writer and former mid-level manager Richard Formentini. Culled from ten years of cabdriving in America's most loved city, Long Shift rollicks through the petty, the heart-breaking, chilling, and ultimately humorous universe of the backseat, where, if you listen closely eugh, you'll catch the moments of grace and subtle clues that tell us life isn't quite as random as we think.
In addition to driving a cab, Richard Formentini has worked as a screenwriter, truck driver, professor, janitor, translator, bartender and filmmaker. There were a few other jobs in there but he'd rather not bring them up. He presently teaches writing at a very small college in the San Francisco Bay Area and writes mostly for other people.
