THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE

À propos

'Dick's best work, and the most memorable alternative world tale...ever written' SCIENCE FICTION: THE 100 BEST NOVELS It is 1962 and the Second World War has been over for seventeen years: people have now had a chance to adjust to the new order. But it's not been easy. The Mediterranean has been drained to make farmland, the population of Africa has virtually been wiped out and America has been divided between the Nazis and the Japanese. In the neutral buffer zone that divides the two superpowers lives the man in the high castle, the author of an underground bestseller, a work of fiction that offers an alternative theory of world history in which the Axis powers didn't win the war. The novel is a rallying cry for all those who dream of overthrowing the occupiers. But could it be more than that? Subtle, complex and beautifully characterized, The Man in the High Castle remains the finest alternative world novel ever written, and a work of profundity and significance.

Philip K. DICK (1928-1982), écrivain américain de science-fiction est l'auteur des plus célèbres romans SF du monde : Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Le Maître du Haut-Château et Ubik. Souffrant de paranoïa et accro aux médicaments, il écrit des livres qui sont devenus des classiques de la littérature SF. Artiste maudit à ses débuts, ce n'est qu'après sa mort, quelques jours avant la sortie du film Blade Runner, qu'il entre dans la légende.
