Byrne on Detroit

I'm a sucker for celebrities who talk about Detroit. Latest find: David Byrne.

The New York Times writes about his new book, which outlines the rock legend's love of the humble bicycle.

“Bicycle Diaries” contains accounts of his travels in distant cities like London, Berlin, Buenos Aires and Manila, as well as some closer to home — New Orleans, San Francisco and Detroit. His description of riding in Detroit is especially good: “I bike from the center of town out to the suburbs. It's an amazing ride — a time line through a city's history, its glory and betrayal.”
