SKU: 9780143117964 Category: Tag: Product ID: 80503


A round-the-world bicycle tour with one of the most original artists of our day.

Urban bicycling has become more popular than ever as recession-strapped, climate-conscious city dwellers reinvent basic transportation. In this wide-ranging memoir, artist/musician and co-founder of Talking Heads David Byrne–who has relied on a bike to get around New York City since the early 1980s–relates his adventures as he pedals through and engages with some of the world’s major cities. From Buenos Aires to Berlin, he meets a range of people both famous and ordinary, shares his thoughts on art, fashion, music, globalization, and the ways that many places are becoming more bike-friendly. Bicycle Diaries is an adventure on two wheels conveyed with humor, curiosity, and humanity.
