from zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance, robert pirsig posted in literature by crabapple

In the early spring of 1972, Robert Pirsig wrote the final five chapters of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance in a two month period.

He lived and worked in the camper, working while there was natural sunlight because lights in the camper weren't adequate.
