The biography of a cabbie condensed into an often hilarious, celebrity-rich and geographically informative journey across London...

John Healy drove a black cab around London for twenty-seven years, meeting a fascinating cross-section of people, from the rich and famous to the infamous and downright difficult. In his autobiography he takes the reader on an imaginary cab journey around the capital, creating a unique travelogue crammed with anecdotes about the characters he has met.

His story is interspersed with intriguing facts about London's exciting, diverse and occasionally gruesome history, and recalls some of the most devastating terrorist atrocities to hit London in recent times.

Before becoming a cabbie, John worked for twenty years as a television engineer, mending sets for celebrities like Hayley Hills, Margaret Thatcher and Lord Lucan. He draws on these experiences, too, and the result is an exclusive, insider's view of London life that spans almost five decades.

John Healy was born in Limerick and raised in County Dublin, but moved to the UK in the late 1950’s. He worked as a TV engineer, then spent twenty-seven years as a London cabbie. John has previously published a children's book, The Flea and the Cauliflower (Authorhouse, 2008). He lives in Tooting, South West London.
