Time Out of Joint Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Time Out of Joint

This is an older PKD work written in '59 but well worth a read today. It sets up the the theme of Man vs. Reality which became prevelant throughout all his subsequent writings. Interesting to note is how closely the film the Truman Show borrows the concepts from this novel.
"Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, it doesn't go away" Phillip K. Dick.
