“The only biography I’ve ever read that’s as exciting as a spy novel . . . Phil Dick’s life was as weird and mysterious as any of his science fiction books.”–Robert Anton Wilson
With thirty-eight books currently in print and seven of his novels and short stories adapted into blockbuster films, Philip K. Dick is recognized worldwide as one of our time’s greatest and most influential novelists. Lawrence Sutin’s Divine Invasions, acknowledged by the Dick family as the official Philip K. Dick biography, illuminates the life of the man who loosed the bonds of the science-fiction genre and profoundly influenced such writers as Pynchon, Delillo, David Foster Wallace, and Jonathan Lethem. Absorbing, beautifully written, and profoundly revealing, DivineInvasions is a must-read for Dick fans and for all fans of contemporary fiction and film.
