Product description


'Emmanuel Carrere's I AM ALIVE AND YOU ARE DEAD: A JOURNEY INTO THE MIND OF PHILIP K. DICK is remarkable - a depth charge, a CAT scan, and an exorcism. Carrere, whose own eerie novels include THE ADVERSARY, proves that it's still possible for the French to write like Voltaire rather than Derrida. Informed, affectionate, sardonic, he is also crystal clear' Harper's US 'Startling ... Carrere gets so far inside the head of the deeply troubled author ... the resulting text is remarkably vivid, intimate, often haunting ... ' Philadelphia Inquirer 'What Dick thinks and feels as man and writer is richly developed in this riveting biography. Mr Carrere's book is mesmerizing. Seldom have I read a biographer who drew me so deeply into his subject's world' New York Sun 'Every whorl of Dick's mind, every delusion, every leap through the looking glass, is chronicled. The effect is powerful ... ' Boston Globe
