Zen and Now: On the Trail of Robert Pirsig and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

Author(s): Mark Richardson


Zen and Now is a vivid chronicle of a journalist's heartfelt and determined journey to reconnect with a beloved American classic.

In 1968, Robert Pirsig and his eleven-year-old son, Chris, made the cross-country motorcycle trip that would become the inspiration for Pirsig's book, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance - a powerful blend of personal narrative and philosophical investigation that has inspired generations. Among the millions of readers to fall under the book's spell was Mark Richardson. Moved by its portrayal of Pirsig's complex relationship with Chris and struck by the timelessness of its lessons, he tuned up his old Suzuki dirt bike and became a 'Pirsig pilgrim', one of the legions of fans who retrace the Pirsigs' route from Minneapolis to San Francisco.
