Product Description

A TV celebrity of the near future suddenly finds that he has no identity in this SF variation on the amnesia novel, which suffers from an inadequate ending. Vintage also releases, for $10 each, Dick's Now Wait for Last Year (*-74220-4 ), about a doctor who is treating the world's most important and sickest man, and The World Jones Made (*-74219-0 ), about a fanatic clairvoyant.

"Dick [was] many authors: a poor man's Pynchon, an oracular postmodern, a rich product of the changing counterculture" Village Voice

About the Author

Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) was born in Chicago but lived in California for most of his life. He went to college at Berkeley for a year, ran a record store and had his own classical-music show on a local radio station. He published his first short story, 'Beyond Lies the Wub' in 1952. Among his many fine novels are The Man in the High Castle, Time Out of Joint, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From AudioFile

The author salutes George Orwell and Franz Kafka with a frightening story set in the dystopian American ÒfutureÓ of 1988. The novel, written in 1974, follows television and pop star Jason Taverner on an odyssey into a nightmare world in which he apparently has never existed. The expert Scott Brick adds his particular narrative skill to the mix, making TavernerÕs plight believable and eerily real. Brick keeps the story afloat as it rushes through confusing waters. The listener knows no more than the storyÕs hero as he tries to salvage his identity amid a fascist regime in which NOBLESSE OBLIGE is a foreign concept to a self-indulgent ruling class.
