Philip K. Dick: The Last Interview: and Other Conversations
Authors: Dick, Philip K.
Publisher: Melville House
Synopsis: An electric collection of interviews--including the first and the last—with one of the 20th century's most prolific, influential, and dazzlingly original writers of science fiction
Long before Ridley Scott transformed Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? into Blade Runner, Philip K. Dick was banging away at his typewriter in relative obscurity, ostracized by the literary establishment. Today he is widely considered one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. These interviews reveal a man plagued by bouts of manic paranoia and failed suicide attempts; a career fuelled by alcohol, amphetamines, and mystical inspiration; and, above all, a magnificent and generous imagination at work.
