His best straight fiction novel

by KingCrab on Apr 25, 2007

Easily the best of PKD's straight fiction novels, Confessions of A Cr*p Artist (the basis for French film, Barjo) is so darkly funny, and so spot-on in it's lampooning of late 50's suburban/rural California life that it ought to be a textbook. For those who only know PKD through his groundbreaking sf work, this should serve as a further eye-opener. One wishes that the fictional world of Michael Bishop's The Secret Ascension were actual, and that PKD's straight fiction were the celebrated works. Ah, well. Have fun guessing which of the characters PKD most closely related to/based upon himself!
