Life Is a Wheel:Love, Death, Etc., and a Bike Ride Across America

Bruce Weber

In 2011, 57-year-old Bruce Weber, an obituary writer for the New York Times, began a bucket-list cross-country bicycle trip from Oregon to New York City and wrote about it for the paper. In Life Is a Wheel, he expands upon the articles and blog posts that chronicled his popular adventure story. Weber details not only the people he met and the places he visited, but reflects on his family, his relationships, and his own mortality. An intimate, two-wheeled perspective on life and America from the author of As They See ‘Em: A Fan’s Travels in the Land of Umpires (2009).
