Hilton Kramer, book reviewer …

… Anecdotal Evidence: `The Work of Intelligence or Imagination'.

I reviewed a Library of America collection of late Philip K. Dick. I found the books fascinating, though I would never revisit them. I also think an acquaintance with psychedelics and other drugs helps in appreciating them.

  1. Drugs aren't necessary for appreciating Dick. Being open to what Artaud and Rimbaud and Baudelaire insisted on, the derangement of the senses, is helpful. Also, it doesn't hurt to be at least somewhat paranoid.
