A bicycle messenger offers a poetic and evocative account of the world of the bicycle messenger, a uniquely urban icon, as he describes the freedom, community, and liberation he has found in his own life and in the lives of his peers. 25,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
Travis Hugh Culley came to Chicago to work and live as an artist. He knew he'd have to struggle, but he found that his struggle meant more than hard work and a taste for poverty. In becoming a bike messenger, he found a sense of community and fulfillment - and a brotherhood of like-minded individualists. He rode like a postmodern cowboy across the city's landscape; he passed like a shadow through its soaring office towers; he soared like a falcon through the roaring chaos of the multilayered streets of Chicago. He became an invisible man in society, yet at the same time its most intimate observer. In one of the most dangerous jobs on dry land, he found freedom.
