Bicycle Diaries

Recommended Posts

first no idea where to put this

 

not really sport book, it's about leisure cycling or bicycle as transport. however due to the book taking in many different cities, i feel travel is right. i'm not sure. mods move as you wish

 

anyway

 

i finished "bicycle diaries" by david byrne. This was a superb read. it's about societal, cultural, political analysis from david byrne. in it, the focus is what he sees on his travelling in various cities and the interconnection of these events leading to highly well written prose inspired by the freedoms of the bicycle.

This one is on my list of 'must find' books. I just watched the amazing Jonathan Demme music film of the Talking Heads in 1983, Stop Making Sense - a superb show that revolved almost entirely around the skill and talent and inventiveness of one man - Byrne.

 

I've followed some of his musical work with interest for a long time; this book sounds right up my street.
