4 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Umberto Rossi on January 27, 2011
Format: Hardcover
It's a quite expensive essay, but it's rather disappointing. The author doesn't even know Fredric Jameson, who is one of the most important critics who have dealt with Dick's oeuvre. No mention of Jameson's fundamental essays on Time Out of Joint and Dick's masterpieces of the 1960s. All in all, this book reads like a PhD dissertation written by a not-too-talented student, and I can't understand why it was published. Unless, since Dick's rather hot thanks to the publication of his works in the Library of America, publishers now think that any book with Dick in its title may sell quite well.

The introduction repeats ideas and often platitudes that have already been said I don't know how many times. Did we really need to read them again? I hope that the readings of single works are better (though I am not optimistic, because the author chose to discuss those novels who have already been discussed and re-discussed, such as Martian Time-Slip or Valis--with the possible exception of A Maze of Death.
