Reviews

This 1985 outing is another in Tor's new series of Dick's non-sf writings. This slice-of-life features protagonist Bruce Stevens, who drives from Boise, ID, to San Francisco and elsewhere looking for deals on typewriters. Along the way, he picks up his former school teacher, whom he has the hots for, and paper salesman Milton Lumky. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

First published in 1985 by a small press, this "realist" (read: not sci-fi) early novel from dystopian master Dick (1928-1982) bears the following introductory author's note: "This is actually a very funny book, and a good one, too, in that the funny things that happen happen to real people who come alive. The ending is a happy one. What more can an author say? What more can he give?" To which one answers "indeed," and quickly turns to the adventures of protagonist Bruce Stevens as he drives into the Pacific Northwest--the sales territory of a Willy Lomanesque man named Milton Lumky--looking for wholesale typewriters.
