    You see that guy over there? Now, he’s an actor. The guy on the phone, he’s a prize fighter. This lady over here, she’s a beautician. The man behind her, he’s a writer. Me? I’m a cab driver. I’m the only cab driver in this place.

    I rather enjoyed this book, which is the only one of Balzac’s I have read.

    At 1831, it’s also the earliest incident I have read of “The Curiosity Shop”, which struck me as funny because I read two other books within months that also used the trope.Report
