Storyline

Truman Korovin is a lonely, sharp-witted cab driver in Fairbanks, Alaska, 1980. The usual routine of picking up fares and spending his nights at his favorite bar, the Boatel, is disrupted when his girlfriend, Emily, dumps him on one of the coldest nights of the year. After an acid trip, Truman winds up in the local loony bin. Imprisoned in a grueling therapy group, Truman gets re-acquainted with loonies who are his old cab fares, which includes a local stripper he has insulted more than once. In this world, Truman must find or lose himself. Written by Anonymous

cab driver drunk and stoned in Fairbanks
3 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i didn't hate it but i didn't love it. thought the plot line was hard to believe...college girl getting a novel published dating a bugger eating, drunk, drug addicted cab driver? then moving on to his equally whacked out friend? And speaking of whacked----a mailbox? Come on. Really. As a fairbanksan, they could have left that thank you off the end. For a good, poignant, heartwarming story about the north and it's inhabitants watch 'The North' in french. Chronic Town is a Fairbanks I have seen but only a sordid corner of it. Insulting. Didn't like plot line. Didn't like some of the dialogue. Photography not so hot. Music fine.
