Description
Based on thousands of pages of typed and handwritten notes, journal entries, letters, and story sketches, The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick is a magnificent, imaginative final work from an author who dedicated his life to questioning the nature of reality and perception, the malleability of space and time, and the relationship between the human and the divine. Here he documents his eight-year attempt to fathom what he called "2-3-74," a postmodern visionary experience of the entire universe transformed into information. "The Exegesis is the sort of book associated with legends and madmen," says Jonathan Lethem in his introduction, "but Dick wasn't a legend and he wasn't mad. He lived among us, and was a genius." In entries that sometimes ran to hundreds of pages, in a freewheeling voice that ranges through personal confession, esoteric scholarship, dream accounts, and fictional fugues, Dick tried to write his way into the heart of a cosmic mystery that tested his powers of imagination and invention to the limit.
