✨✧ Philip K DickFlow My Tears The Policeman Said ... Book
Gollancz (UK), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great 70s story from Philip K Dick – written right before the author got very far-out in his narratives – and very much in the mode of his best books from the 60s! The story revolves around the usual PKD workplace paranoia – a TV star is suddenly bereft of identity, and without any sense of himself in a highly-monitored police state – unsure whether to take advantage of this newfound freedom, or try to recreate himself on paper – then doubting his previous reality in the process. This summation hardly does justice to the story – which draws its real charm from Dick's compact prose, and great ear for characterization – the kind of proper speculative narrative writing that, more than anything, gets at the heart of the human condition, even in unfamiliar circumstances. 204 pages, softcover.
