Dick is the American writer who in recent years has most influenced non-American poets, novelists, and essayists. Roberto Bolano
In "Counter-Clock World," time has begun moving backward. People greet each other with goodbye, blow smoke into cigarettes, and rise from the dead. When one of those rising dead is the famous and powerful prophet Anarch Peak, a number of groups start a mad scramble to find him first but their motives are not exactly benevolent because Anarch Peak may just be worth more dead than alive, and these groups will do whatever they must to send him back to the grave.
What would you do if your long-dead relatives started coming back? Who would take care of them? And what if they preferred being dead? In "Counter-Clock World," one of Dick s most theological and philosophical novels, these troubling questions are addressed; though, as always, you may have to figure out the answers yourself.
