Culture on Two Wheels: The Bicycle in Literature & Film is now in print! Edited by Jeremy Withers and Daniel P. Shea and published by the University of Nebraska Press, the volume examines bikes in literature (Twain, Proust, H.G. Wells, Beckett and more) and in film (Truffaut, Tarkovsky, The Wizard of Oz, Breaking Away, etc.).
It also includes my essay titled, “Like a Furnace: Alfred Jarry’s The Supermale, Doping, and the Limits of Positivism.”
