In My Library... Bicycle Diaries

It's fair to say, I was weaned on the Talking Heads.

While other kids were singing along to Sesame Street, I was bopping along to "Road to Nowhere" and "Wild Wild Life." David Bryne's voice was more familiar to me than Kermit the Frog's.

So, you can imagine my delight when I learned about David Bryne's book, Bicycle Diaries. The beautiful book tells the stories Bryne acquired from years of biking through some of the world's more interesting cities. His perceptions of urban life, and how cityscapes are undergoing great transformation, makes you rethink what makes any given city great for those living there.

Since Prippies love bikes and David Bryne, this is a must for the library!
