Listen to English Professor S. Matthew Biberman's interview on the podcast Ghost in the Machine, about his memoir Big Sid's Vincati, which is coming out in translation in Spanish and Italian. You can check out the interview here.

From the show notes: "What does your motorcycle mean to you? For many riders, a bike is simply a tool, a vehicle for the body. But for some of us, a motorcycle is much more than that, a vessel that carries the stories of who we are and how we got here. Meet Matthew Biberman, son of legendary Vincent builder Big Sid Biberman. To give his ailing father a reason to live, Matthew proposed they build a bike together, a rare Vincati. That quest would turn out to be a remarkable story of second chances for both of them, and compelling proof that a motorcycle really can have a soul."

Dr. Biberman's memoir Big Sid's Vincati has previously been reviewed in The New York Times (by Stanley Fish) and has been featured in the Louisville Courier Journal, The Kansas City Star, The Sacramento Bee, Motorcyclist, and on TV on WKU-PBS's Mainstreet, Jay Leno’s Garage and Discovery Channel's Cafe Race.
