What is Valis? This question is at the heart of Philip K. Dick’s ground-breaking novel, and the first book in his defining trilogy. When a beam of pink light begins giving a schizophrenic man named Horselover Fat (who just might also be known as Philip K. Dick) visions of an alternate Earth where the Roman Empire still reigns, he must decide whether he is crazy, or whether a godlike entity is showing him the true nature of the world.

Valis is essential reading for any true Philip K. Dick fan, a novel that Roberto Bolaño called “more disturbing than any novel by [Carson] McCullers.” By the end, like Dick himself, you will be left wondering what is real, what is fiction, and just what the price is for divine inspiration.

    " Hadn't read this since high school. It's a great, thinly veiled cosmological/mystical thesis--living philosophy without the practicality or posturing of "zen and the art...". Looking forward to revisiting the rest of the trilogy in future bedtimes. "

    " Very weird. The first half was God waffle and I almost gave up but from half way through it actually went into more VALIS detail and was far more enjoyable. "

    " This is my favorite PKD. Not for everybody. "

    " This is an exceptionally trippy novel by the master of the unusual story. I have read this volume several times and I get new depths to the meaning behind it every time. "
