Published by Festival Books; distributed by Shearsman Books.

A fourteen-year-old boy is keeping a scrapbook about cyclomotors: small motorized attachments reputed to transform ordinary bicycles into celestial chariots. He works on the river, reads his nother's diary, endures his last days at school, and dreams of objects that have the power to change his world. Cyclomotors is a fairy-tale of modernisation, a tissue of stories woven around a boy's scrapbook found amongst the rubble of a demolished block of flats.
