“Philip K. Dick succeeded in creating a plausible imaginary world in which Americans are obliged to squirm with embarrassment, resentment and remorse; they bear the full weight of cultural oppression which has been borne in our time-stream by so many of the world’s other peoples… The novel questions our whole notion of ‘reality,’ showing how frail the consensus can be… It is probably Dick’s best work, and the most memorable alternative world tale, or fantasia of historical possibility, ever written” (Science Fiction 100 Best, 93-94). “The single most resonant and carefully imagined book of Dick’s career… One of America’s enduring expressionist novels of alienation and disillusionment, whose environs are no more far-fetched than the West Egg mansion of an ersatz millionaire” (New York Times). Winner of the 1963 Hugo Award for Best Novel. It is the basis for the successful series produced by Amazon Studios starring Alexa Davalos and Rupert Evans.
