Diary of an Infomercenary, Norene Cashen, Detroit Metro Times
There must be some unique quality possessed by bike messengers that enables them to capture our imagination like no other - maybe it's their superhero speed and awe-inspiring courage, saving the day by swerving around corners and delivering packages in just the nick of time. In The Immortal Class: Bike Messengers and the Cult of Human Power, Travis Hugh Culley shares his early 1990's experiences of messengering, years when he glimpsed the world of CEOs and secretaries, and discovered the hidden passageways of the city. Norene Cashen of the Detroit Metro Times notes that The Immortal Class is "a paradoxical but worthwhile and entertaining ride...full of arresting insights, youthful radicalism, worker poetry and dreamy Peter Pan heroism."
