like beat laureate jack kerouac, phillip k. dick wrote very fast. even though i think he is an amazing writer, i could not say it is a relaxing experience to enter his world. he must have been so very grateful for his talent as it surely gave him the means to free the visions from his brain. carrere's excellent biography of this fascinating writer had my head spinning. the author of, among many others, 'do androids dream of electric sheep' and 'the man in the high castle' was very high indeed. my heart broke for him.
