Alternate History: The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick

"It's America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. All because some 20 years earlier the United States lost a war, and is now occupied jointly by Nazi Germany and Japan. This harrowing, Hugo Award-winning novel is the work that established Philip K. Dick as an innovator in science fiction while breaking the barrier between science fiction and the serious novel of ideas. In it Dick offers a haunting vision of history as a nightmare from which it may just be possible to awake."

      Oh, you mean the one where you have no idea what the hell just happened? I freely admit that may just be me though.

      That's status quo for a proper PKD ending. Reality isn't its own thing, so much as it is a loose suggestion.
      The funny thing is, this ending is one of his more cogent ones.

    Just a reminder, we have 5 copies of the book still at Fremont--stop by the Reader's Services desk and pick one up!
