Jack Isidore doesn’t see the world like most people. According to his brother-in-law Charlie, he’s a crap artist, obsessed with his own bizarre theories and ideas, which he fanatically records in his many notebooks. He is so grossly unequipped for real life that his sister and brother-in-law feel compelled to rescue him from it. But while Fay and Charlie Hume put on a happy face for the world, they prove to be just as sealed off from reality, in thrall to obsessions that are slightly more acceptable than Jack’s but a great deal uglier. Their constant fighting and betrayals threaten their own marriage and the relationships of everyone around them. When they bring Jack into their home, he finds himself in the middle of a maelstrom of suburban angst from which he might not be able to escape.

    " This is a non-scifi novel by the great PK Dick. I would call it some of his better work. From what I remember it looks at what really makes someone "successful" and happy in life. It's been a while. In any case, I remember really enjoying this. "

    " Made me laugh, even if it a bit bleak. There is no sci-fi in here apart from a crappot organisation that believes in aliens. However it is an interesting disection of complex relationships. If you have read other PK Dick, its not really about the sci fi, but what happens between people. "

    " A couple problems. The Isidore guy refers to the title of the book as his own--even though the whole book isn't his (with Fay narrating some and nobody narrating the rest). A bigger concern was that his voice changed when he moved up north--and never stayed all that consistent for long. In fact, I'd guess that parts of it too were originally third person before Phil converted them (that's how it reads anyway). Think I'll stick to the sci-fi novels...oh, except I'm all done. "
