ZEN AND NOW : On the Trail of Robert Pirsig and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
Richardson, Mark      
ISBN: 9781921401299
UWA Publishing Crawley, Western Australia 2008 First Australian (pbk) 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Softcover ix, + 274pp., two-page b/white story route map. Book clean, square. Spine firm. Leaves clean. Illustrated card wrapper mildly edgeworn, with a soft corner crease. " . . . a vivid chronicle of a journalist’s heartfelt and determined journey to reconnect with a beloved American classic . . . In following this itinerary over the lonely byways of the American West, Richardson revisits the people and places from 'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance', pondering the meaning of Pirsig’s philosophy and the answers it may offer to the questions in his own life. Richardson’s dogged reporting also gives new insight into the reclusive writer’s life, exploring Pirsig’s struggle with mental illness, his unwanted celebrity, and the tragic, brutal murder of his son Chris in 1979. Published to coincide with the fortieth anniversary of Pirsig’s original trip, 'Zen and Now' is a stirring meditation on a classic work and a passionate inquiry into the lessons it continues to teach us in the complex and bewildering world we inhabit today."
