David Byrne and Bicycle Diaries

A couple of weeks ago a package arrived for me. I opened it up and inside was this:

Note from Lisa

And this:

Bicycle Diaries

What a lovely thing. I’m a fan of Talking Heads and by extension David Byrne. And I like the idea of this book. It’s a set of observations, insights and views loosely linked around a cycling theme: David takes his fold-up bike all over the world with him and uses it to get about in various cities – from London to Istanbul to San Francisco to his native New York, amongst others – and he writes down the stuff that happens to him and the things he thinks and feels along the way.

I haven’t started it yet, but intend to dip into chapter one today. I’ll post my thoughts on it later.

More on David Byrne here.

And you can get the book here.
