Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743244214, Hardcover)

As chief style journalist for Vanity Fair, Amy Fine Collins has a whirlwind schedule, packed with glittery parties, swanky shows, and high-profile assignments that keep her busy twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week - and as if that's not enough, she's a wife and mother too. In Manhattan where taxis and limousines reign, she never had the time - or need - to learn how to drive. But when the brilliant and determined Amy decided it was time to get behind the wheel and ultimately overcome her lifelong phobia of driving, nothing (except a red light) could stop her. Amy's first driving instructor was efficient, but not very effective, so she dropped her lessons and went back to her glamorous life. But then, as only a true compulsive would, she decided to call the school again and give driving lessons another whirl. This time she was paired with an outrageously handsome, exotic, and mysterious Turkish man named Attila, a.k.a.The God of Driving. Both a character study and a brisk-paced inspirational tale, THE GOD OF DRIVING follows Collins as she becomes captivated by her wise, charismatic instructor and his secret past and obsessed with all things automotive - from motorcycles and sports cars to speedways. And while Attila is totally changing her life, she is also completely transforming his. Lively, humorous, and always entertaining, THE GOD OF DRIVING is a fascinating journalistic odyssey centred on the unlikely bond between a fashionable Manhattan socialite and her magnetic, elusive, guru-like driving instructor.
