Votre note
Jack Isidore is a chronicler and collector of crackpot ideas and worthless objects. He believes, among other things, that sunlight has weight and that a civilisation exists inside the world. He is a man so ill-equipped for real life that his sister and her husband, who thinks of Jack as a crap artist, have to take him in. But when Jack's apparently innocent but ruthless gaze is turned on them, Fay and Charley Hume are seen to be in thrall to obsessions too.
Obsessions that, thanks to Jack's observations, can only end in tragedy...

Biographie de Philip-K Dick

Philip K. Dick was born in 1928. His twin sister, Jane, died in infancy. He started his writing career publishing short stories in magazines. The first of these was Beyond Lies the Wub in 1952. While publishing science fiction prolifically during the 1950s, Dick also wrote a series of mainstream novels. Confessions of a Crap Artist was the only one of these to be published during his lifetime. During the 1960s, Dick produced an extraordinary succession of novels, including The Man in the High Castle, which won a Hugo Award, Martian Time-Slip, Dr Bloodmoney, The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and UBIK.
In the 1970s, Dick started to concern himself more directly with metaphysical and theological issues, experiencing a moment of revelation - or breakdown - in March 1974, which became the basis for much of his subsequent writing, in particular Valis, as he strove to make sense of what had happened. He died in 1982, a few weeks before the film Blade Runner opened and introduced him to a wider audience.
