PAPERBACK AND E-BOOK AVAILABLE THE SAME DAY
David Byrne’s bestselling
Viking Press hardcover, Bicycle Diaries, will be released as an enhanced audiobook September 28
with pre-orders beginning today.
Offered exclusively at
www.bicycle-diaries.com, this new edition is narrated by Byrne
and features music (by Byrne) and location sounds to create an atmosphere more akin to a radio show than a simple
reading of the book. Presented in podcast-style downloads, the listener will have a choice to purchase individual
chapters or the complete book. The introductory chapter will be free. In addition to the audio version, the
paperback and E-book editions will also be released the same day. The E-book version will include color images not
included in the hardcover.
Part travelogue, part journal and part photo album, Bicycle Diaries chronicles what Byrne sees and whom he
meets as he pedals through metropolises ranging from Berlin to Buenos Aires, Istanbul to San Francisco, Manila to
New York. The collection includes records Byrne’s thoughts on world music, urban planning, fashion, architecture,
cultural dislocation and more.
