As Gripping as a P Novel,
This review is from: Divine Invasions: A Life of Philip K. Dick (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
Phillip K Dick wrote some of the most prescient novels of the 20th century. His seemingly rather paranoid and disturbing vision of the future has seemed less paranoid and closer to the truth of our lives with every passing year.
Lawrence Sutin makes a fascinating and well researched read out of the life of PKD. His great achievement is making the inner and outer life of a prolific writer as interesting and exciting as one of PKDs novels.
He also reviews PKDs major works in a final chapter giving a fair assesment of the best and brightest which makes this a great starting point for people who are interested in Phillip K Dicks work but are not sure where to start.
I'm on to the second copy of this book, the 1st copy fell apart after being read avidly by many friends - it's that good!
