Jonathan Lethem on Philip K. Dick's "The Exegesis"

March 4, 2012

Jonathan Lethem talks to Steve Paulson about "The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick," the project Dick obsessed over during the last eight years of his life as he tried to come to terms with a series of strange visionary experiences.  Lethem is the co-editor, along with Pamela Jackson, of "The Exegesis."



Seems weird that Lethem doesn't mention Dick's own book V.A.L.I.S, which was his personal analysis and compilation of these notes on this extended episode of Dick's life.


Not mentioning it at all seems like an obvious & gaping hole, and therefore intentional.

Seriously, why?
