Published Sep 13, 2010In 2009, post-punk legend and former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne released Bicycle Diaries, a memoir of his life as an avid bike rider in New York City. Exactly one year later, the book will be getting a wider release in a variety of new formats.
On September 28, Viking will release Bicycle Diaries in a paperback edition and eBook. More excitingly, the book will be available as an audiobook read by Byrne himself with accompanying music. According to Byrne's website, the audiobook "also features location sounds, creating an atmosphere more akin to a radio show than a simple reading of the book. The introduction to the book can be streamed in full below.
While all of the new content will make for a great audiobook, we're most excited to hear Byrne stick it to Paris Hilton out loud.
