“The real cycle you’re working on is a cycle called ‘yourself.’” --From ZEN AND THE ART OF MOTORCYCLE MAINTENANCE (ZMM) Few books transform a generation and then establish themselves as touchstones for the generations that follow. ZMM is one such book. Years in the writing; rejected by 121 publishers; this modern epic of a man’s search for meaning became an instant bestseller on publication in 1974, acclaimed as one of the most exciting books in the history of American letters. It continues to inspire millions. An autobiography of the mind and body, ZMM is a deceptively simple narration about a motorcycle trip taken by a father and his eleven-year-old son; a summer junket that confronts mortal truths on the journey of life. As the miles pass the mind expands, and the narrator’s tale covers many topics, from motorcycle maintenance itself through a search for how to live, an inquiry into “what is best,” to the creation of an austerely beautiful philosophical system reconciling science, religion, and humanism. Unwanted and unbidden is the narrator’s confrontation with a ghost: his former self, a brilliant man whose search for truth drove him to madness and death. This ghost, Phaedrus, haunts the narrator as he and his son visit places where they once lived. And, too, he confronts his deteriorating relationship with his son, who has himself been diagnosed as suffering the beginning symptoms of mental illness. ZMM speaks directly to the confusions and agonies of existence. In his intimate detailing of a personal and philosophical odyssey, Robert M. Pirsig has written a touching, painful, and ultimately transcendent book of life.
