Dick was a hugely influential writer who drew upon his own life to address the nature of drug abuse, paranoia, schizophrenia, and transcendental experiences of all kinds. He was a prolific author and many of his books were turned into popular films such as Blade Runner, A Scanner Darkly, Total Recall, and Minority Report. This book has been written with the cooperation of several close acquaintances and looks to examine his work as well as the socio-political-cultural environment in which he lived. It will be of great interest to any fan of Philip K. Dick or science fiction in general, as well as anyone who grew up the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s."---, ---Contents include: Foreword; The End (1982); The Beginning (1928-46); The Young Writer (1947-53) ; The Novelist (1954-58) ; The Bourgeois Idyll (1959-64); The Hackett Years (1965-70) ; The Single Life (1970-71); The Theophany (1972-74) ; The High Earner (1975-80); The Final Years (1979-82) ; The Esoteric Explanation; A Neurological Explanation ; Epilogue: The Man Behind the Myth ; Endnotes; Index, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
