Description

Philip K. Dick knew better than anyone how to recognize the disturbances of exile. Roberto Bolano
When catastrophic overpopulation threatens Earth, one company offers to teleport citizens to Whale s Mouth, an allegedly pristine new home for happy and industrious emigres. But there is one problem: the teleportation machine only works in one direction. When Rachmael ben Applebaum discovers that some of the footage of happy settlers may have been faked, he sets out on an eighteen-year journey to see if anyone wants to come back.Lies, Inc. is one of Philip K. Dick s final novels, which he expanded from his novella The Unteleported Man shortly before his death. In its examination of totalitarianism, reality, and hallucination, it encompasses everything that Dick s fans love about his oeuvre.
Over a career that spanned three decades, Philip K. Dick (1928 1982) wrote 121 short stories and 45 novels, establishing himself as one of the most visionary authors of the twentieth century. His work is included in the Library of America and has been translated into more than twenty-five languages. Eleven works have been adapted to film, including Blade Runner (based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), Total Recall, Minority Report, and A Scanner Darkly.
