Based on thousands of pages of typed and handwritten notes, journal entries, letters, and story sketches, The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick is the magnificent and imaginative final work of 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. Edited and introduced by Pamela Jackson and Jonathan Lethem, this is the definitive presentation of Dick’s brilliant, and epic, work.

In the Exegesis, Dick documents his eight-year attempt to fathom what he called “2-3-74,” a postmodern visionary experience of the entire universe “transformed into information.” 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.

This volume, the culmination of many years of transcription and archival research, has been annotated by the editors and by a unique group of writers and scholars chosen to offer a range of views into one of the most improbable and mind-altering manuscripts ever brought to light.

    " Like an empathy box linking the reader to the apotheosis of the mad, brilliant PKD. "

    " Complicated writing, complicated to explain even what it is. Eight thousand pages of Philip K. Dick's handwritten scriblings over the last eight years of his life, collected into a book. As messy as it sounds. "

    " Spectacular insight into the creative excesses of a Benzedrine fueled imagination. The tangled web of Dick's mind is laid bare as you can follow a map from synapse to synapse in a read that could ensnare your own mind. "
