Customer Review

on 20 June 1997
Readers of "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" will recognize the character of Jack Isidore right off. He plays a very similar role in this book as that one; in both places he is a semi-autistic outcast who obsesses over religion (in "Androids") and the out-of-the-ordinary. The differences are:1. "Crap Artist," though not released until 1975, was written in 1959, nine years before "Androids" and 2. This is not a science fiction novel, per se.

Indeed, here we see Dick writing about the obsessions and personality disorders of the every-day man. He writes it in Faulkner-fashion; letting his characters trade off first person accounts. Jack is only one of them. The tale of spouse abuse, UFO-worshipping, deception, and modern convenience is brilliant. Had Dick refined a few of the early chapters, it would have been perfect. A dark, and overlooked treasure
