Artist-writer-cabdriver Dmitry Samarov has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund his next book, prospectively titled “Hack: More Stories From a Chicago Cab.” (The University of Chicago Press published his first, Hack: Stories From a Chicago Cab, last year.)

Samarov tweeted last week: “Anyone out there feel like paying me to paint or write something? I really don’t wanna drive a damn cab anymore.”
