A woman looks back in forgiveness on a seven-year relationship with her uncle. Together they have traveled to the darkest, most intimate and unspoken of places. How I Learned To Drive is the story of a young woman whose coming-of-age in the 1960s and 70s is defined by driving lessons provided by her uncle, lessons which extend well-beyond learning the rules of the road. A beautifully crafted story unfolds her memories with breathtaking insight, wit and warmth.
