Overview

Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said by Philip K. Dick

"Dick skillfully explores the psychological ramifications of this nightmare."—The New York Times Review of Books

Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said grapples with many of the themes Philip K. Dick is best known for— identity, altered reality, drug use, and dystopia—in a rollicking chase story that earned the novel the John W. Campbell Award and nominations for the Hugo and Nebula.

Jason Taverner—world-famous talk show host and man-about-town—wakes up one day to find that no one knows who he is—including the vast databases of the totalitarian government. And in a society where lack of identification is a crime, Taverner has no choice but to go on the run with a host of shady characters, including crooked cops and dealers of alien drugs. But do they know more than they are letting on? And just how can a person’s identity be erased overnight?

Okay, I'm an avid PKD fan, and this is my number one favorite book by him, for several reasons. The characters are amazing, and the plot sticks in my mind like no other, but what urged me to read this book is the phenomenon behind it that I read about online. You can look it up yourself, but basically what happened was, 4 years after PKD wrote the book, he started meeting people with the same names as the people in this book, and unintentionally living out actual scenes from it, too. Weird? Of course, that's why we love PKD, isn't it? My favorite book from my favorite author, everyone should read it.

Surprisingly ahead of its time, its not for everyone but I thought it was excellent. Its a quick read, but fans of the genre who are looking for something outside of the ordinary will enjoy the strangeness of this novel.
