Robert Pirsig - Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance


#1

Robert Pirsig, 88, died yesterday at his home in Maine. Maybe you’ve never heard of him, but you’ve surely heard of his 1974 book, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Nominally the story of a motorcycle journey Pirsig took with his son, Christopher, from Minnesota to San Francisco, the book is a philosophical exploration of the meaning of quality—in motorcycles, life, and writing—as much as it is a road trip story.
