An early and daring novel from the Hugo Award-winning author about a young woman caught up in the glamor and dangers of 1950s California
Mary Anne Reynolds is young, vulnerable, and looking for love in Pacific Park, California. During her brief affairs with a middle-aged record shop owner and then a black blues singer, she seems to only succeed in offending the people living in the small-town of Pacific Park, both by her choice of lifestyle and choice of suitors. And while she stumbles through her various relationships and faces her overwhelming need to get out of town, Mary Anne shines as a "forerunner of the liberated sixties woman" (Library Journal) in this novel by the late prolific novelist, Philip K. Dick.
About the Author: Philip K. Dick (1928?1982) wrote 121 short stories and 45 novels and is considered one of the most visionary writers 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.
