'As Carrere shows in this imaginative biography, Dick may have been the most paranoid writer in 1970s California ... The result lends pathos and dignity to the life of a man' Christopher Tayler, Sunday Telegraph 'Carrere is well qualified to conduct a tour of Dick's bizarre world. He gives telling insights into Dick's family background and the voracious and wide-ranging reading that fed into his work ... Most importantly of all, he sends us back with renewed excitement to the flawed, brilliant books themselves' Evening Standard 'Compelling ... This book should convert a few more readers' Guardian '***** Film adaptations of his fiction, including Blade Runner, pale in comparison to the stories. Read I Am Alive and you'll want to go back to the novels, or envy those about to read them for the first time' UncutReseña del editor:
This is an unforgettable biography of the visionary grand master of science fiction, Philip K. Dick. Emmanuel Carrère follows Dick's strange odyssey from his traumatic beginnings in 1928, when his twin sister died in infancy, to his lonely end in 1982, beset by mystical visions of swirling pink light, three-eyed invaders and messages from the Roman Empire. Drawing on interviews and both published and unpublished sources, Carrère traces Dick's multiple marriages, paranoid fantasies and dizzying encounters with the drug culture of California. As disturbing and engrossing as any novel by Philip K. Dick himself, Carrère's unconventional study interweaves life and art to reveal the maddening genius whose writing foresaw - from cloning to reality TV - a world that looks ever more like one of his inventions.
