Zen



According to its author, Robert M Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, was rejected 121 times before finding a publisher. He was given a $3000 advance and told he'd probably not see much more than that from sales. Instead, the book sold millions of copies and has been praised as one of the most important and influential books of the past 50 years. The book is the loosely autobiographical story of a father and son's road trip across the western US. The story also contains flashbacks relating to his schizophrenia diagnosis. Pirsig died Monday at 88.
