    One of Dick's best - and most underrated - novels

    Many of Philip K. Dick's books are very well known - several having been made into successful Hollywood movies - but I've often been confused as to why this isn't among them.<BR/><BR/>Unlike most of his work, it's not science fiction. It takes place mostly in Marin County, California in the late 1950's and it's basically an intense character study of three fairly eccentric people in a family, following a rather twisted, dark, but all-too-plausible plot. <BR/><BR/>The quality of the writing and the depth of character here is in my opinion superior to a lot of Dick's other work. Of special note, however, is the that it seems to me that the character most central to the narrative - Jack Isidore - is Dick's portrayal of himself through fear - that is, Jack Isidore isn't meant to be him, nor necessarily related to how he saw himself on a daily basis, but is in some way a version of himself that he's afraid of being or that he was afraid that - at some points - he actually was. <BR/><BR/>And even if I'm off the mark in that regard, Isidore is still a very interesting, real, and honest examination of some of the more unpleasant aspects of the "nerd" type so commonly associate with sci-fi. And even though the novel itself is far from science fiction, an examination of this type of character coming from one of the genre's modern masters is a valuable read.
