'quality' book

"Zen and Now" is also a motorcycle ride, following as closely as possible Pirsig's original route, woven with a fun, intricate, and entertaining mix of Richardson's own observations about life, motorcycles, small town American life, and a few other things. This interwoven structure is one of my favorite things about the book.

Product Overview

Part travelogue, part meditation on an author and his work, Zen and Now is a tribute to a beloved American book and the landscape that inspired it.

Since it was first published in 1974, Robert Pirsig?s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance has become a modern classic, a beautifully constructed blend of travel narrative and philosophical inquiry that has moved generations of readers. One of those readers was journalistMarkRichardson, who after rediscovering the book at middle age, decided to retrace Pirsig?s journey. Fromthe back of his own motorcycle, Richardson investigates what happened to the reclusive Pirsig, his family, and the people described in the book in the years after its surprising success.
