Book was in near perfect condition.
In 1972, I road my Bicycle with a friend from Miami Fla. to San Francisco.
We met Prof. James Starrs in a roadside park along with Jim's very young son and daughter who were riding with their father. We all road together from Kansas to Boulder, Estes Park, Salt Lake City across the desert at night, Napa Valley to San Rafael and down across the Big Bridge. The best of times! Bob Deresz

This book used to be titled "The Noiseless Tenor", but in this newer edition it has been retitled and given a few extra editorial words. This is a wide-ranging survey of references to the bicycle in mostly-20th-Century works; sometimes the reference is a stretch and Starrs points this fact out. Occasionally he has to piece together fragments of a scene to make the bicycling reference clear. Starrs' piecework is always in italic type -- and occasionally I wondered if he'd ever get to the author's words. But this collection is well-done, and Starrs obviously loves everything to do with the bicycle. His children show up occasionally (mostly in the form of recollections from a cross-country tour while they were growing up), and his own experience influenced the selection. Everything from Ernest Hemingway's flat observational prose to a truly fantastical five-rider cross-country race (against a locomotive) is fair game here, and this book suits its stated purpose of being a volume that can be stashed in the thinking cycle tourist's pannier.
