Much of Dicks work, currently being celebrated in college courses and prestigious anthologies like The Library of America, consists of a kind of surreal autobiography and Annes memoir helps us connect his fictional characters to his life.

Philip K Dick was quite a character himself, both on and off the page, and Annes memoir bravely explores her tumultuous relationship with this mercurial man in an attempt to better understand him and his writing. A touching aspect of this memoir is that it represents Annes search as well.Anne witnessed first-hand the most prolific period in Dicks career, a five year period year stretch from 1958 - 1964 during which time Philip wrote many of his most celebrated novels including: The Man in the High Castle, The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch, Martian Time-Slip, Confessions of a Crap Artist, Dr Bloodmoney, We Can Build You, Now Wait For Last Year, and The Simulacra.

Anne, a fifty four year resident of Point Reyes Station, still lives in the modern Campbell and Wong house she shared with Philip, a house that was featured in many of Dicks books. Reading Annes memoir will open up many of Philips works, revealing the autobiographical material often buried deep in his texts. Biography lovers will enjoy the intensity of detail Anne brings to Dicks complex and intense struggles.
