Description

"The real cycle you're working on is a cycle called 'yourself.'"

One of the most important and influential books of the past half-century, Robert M. Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is a powerful, moving, and penetrating examination of how we live and a meditation on how to live better. Pirsig's narrative of a father and son on a summer motorcycle trip across America's Northwest becomes a profound personal and philosophical odyssey into life's fundamental questions. A true modern classic, it remains at once touching and transcendent, resonant with the myriad confusions of existence and the small, essential triumphs that propel us forward.

The analogies with Moby Dick are patent" New Yorker "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is an unforgettable trip" Time "Disturbing, deeply moving, full of insights...this is a wonderful book" Times Literary Supplement
