"I have done almost every human activity inside a taxi which does not require main drainage." -- Alan Brien
Alan Brien (12 March 1925 — 23 May 2008) was a British journalist best known for his novel Lenin. This took the form of a fictional diary charting Lenin's life from the death of his father to shortly before his own demise in 1924.
