Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said grapples with many of the themes Philip K. Dick is best known for—identity, altered reality, drug use, and dystopia—in a rollicking chase story that earned the novel the John W. Campbell Award and nominations for the Hugo and Nebula.

Jason Taverner—world-famous talk show host and man-about-town—wakes up one day to find that no one knows who he is—including the vast databases of the totalitarian government. And in a society where lack of identification is a crime, Taverner has no choice but to go on the run with a host of shady characters, including crooked cops and dealers of alien drugs. But do they know more than they are letting on? And just how can a person’s identity be erased overnight?

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randy | 2/20/2014

    " The man was a wild writer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron Wickstrom | 2/16/2014

    " Not my favorite Philip K. Dick novel, but still, of course, an awesome novel. I really like the idea of the horribly rich and famous suddenly waking up to find they are no one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Radu | 2/11/2014

    " A classic K. Dick story, where reality isn't what we're used to. A good read for his fans, but there are other better novels that define Philip K. Dick that you should read first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frank Palardy | 2/6/2014

    " This is one of his better books. It's almost hard to remember the plot because it weaves around. You have to read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Xiphias | 2/4/2014

    " A very great story that kind of falls apart at the end. PKD at his most earnest, right up there with A Scanner Darkly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barrett Brown | 1/29/2014

    " It was good, but not particularly amazing when compared to Dick's other books. No idea why it won so many Sci-fi awards. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annie | 1/22/2014

    " Dick's writing is incredibly fluid and easy to read. I read most of the book in one sitting (unusual for me) and then it took me some effort to truck through beyond the "ah ha" moment which I wont expound on to not disclose too much. Overall, it was an entertaining read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Max | 1/8/2014

    " I think this was strongly influenced by Flann O'Brien's The Third Policeman. It's not quite as amazing as O'brien's book, but it's very weird and funny and good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzy Trautman | 1/3/2014

    " It starts off a little slow, but then the second half really picks up speed and leaves you to coast through the finish line at a decent clip. "Grief is the final outcome of love, because it's love lost." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chollie | 12/2/2013

    " Not as enjoyable as some; well-written--it's ok. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randy Benson | 9/27/2013

    " . . .i know the feeling. . . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Noah Stacy | 9/22/2013

    " Dick's novels are short, but potent. This one is easily read in a day or two, but it's a powerful mindfuck that'll you'll be thinking about for weeks after. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamison King | 8/31/2013

    " one of my favorite dick books. yes that was a dick joke. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan (miyu) | 8/8/2013

    " This is among my favorite of the PKD books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherry Thompson | 3/29/2013

    " The way PKD experiments with the themes of identity, reality, and fame are beyond brilliant and frankly poor writing is just a small annoyance in this experimental fiction. Loved this book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 11/19/2012

    " Probably my favorite PKD. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Neil | 4/16/2012

    " One of the most instantly accessible PKD books. It deals with the nature of fame and the perception of reality as it changes and warps in front of you. There's nothing like it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicolai | 3/4/2012

    " Not one of his best, but certainly worth a read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rob Hermanowski | 12/24/2011

    " Almost as good as "Electric Sheep", this has all the makings of another great Philip K. Dick movie adaptation! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seth | 12/20/2011

    " I love this book, in all its flawed glory. It's a simple, fast read, and goes more into the isolation & despair that is the heart of a PKD book. It is the unsung hero - the one book that won't be made into a movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rita Tiwari | 12/13/2011

    " Started strong, but fizzled at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denis | 12/2/2011

    " Absolutely one of PKD's best novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Will Boncher | 10/14/2011

    " That was a very strange book. Very good writing, and a really interesting story, but I was pretty confused throughout. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 5/5/2011

    " probably not the best philip k. dick book i've read. some clever concepts as usual but this one felt like he wasn't quite sure how to resolve the central mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard | 5/1/2011

    " kinda feel apart at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dr. | 3/5/2011

    " Dystopian future, unsolvable mysteries, hallucinogenic drugs, pretty much what I expect out of Phillip K. Dick. This guy seriously reminds me why I love reading so much. I'm just glad that I still have so many of his novels left to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Giampaolo | 3/5/2011

    " La trama di questo splendido libro è solo un pretesto per permettere a Dick di affrontare i temi più disparati, portando il lettore ad affrontare tematiche legate all'amore, al dolore, alla percezione del reale... insomma fantascienza e non solo sapientemente unite in un'ottimo libro. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 3/2/2011

    " Pretty good read. I was confused, and the big plot twist doesn't really make any sense... but science fiction doesn't have to make sense! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annie | 3/1/2011

    " Dick's writing is incredibly fluid and easy to read. I read most of the book in one sitting (unusual for me) and then it took me some effort to truck through beyond the "ah ha" moment which I wont expound on to not disclose too much. Overall, it was an entertaining read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 2/25/2011

    " As with any Philip K. Dick story, be prepared for confusion, drugs, and interesting characters. Though the book has a somewhat anti-climactic ending, the excellent character development more than makes up for the expected loose ends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron | 2/8/2011

    " Not my favorite Philip K. Dick novel, but still, of course, an awesome novel. I really like the idea of the horribly rich and famous suddenly waking up to find they are no one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew | 1/19/2011

    " Had a twist I didn't see coming. Cool concept and fun to read. I really liked the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chollie | 1/15/2011

    " Not as enjoyable as some; well-written--it's ok. "
