Lies, Inc.Scritto da: Philip K. Dick E-book
The solution to Earth’s overpopulation holds a dark secret in this science fiction novel from the author of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
When catastrophic overpopulation threatens Earth, one company offers to teleport citizens to Whale’s Mouth, an allegedly pristine new home for happy and industrious émigrés. 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.
“Philip K. Dick knew better than anyone how to recognize the disturbances of exile. ”—Roberto Bolaño, bestselling author of The Spirit of Science Fiction
