John Gray on The Man in the High Castle

John Gray is a writer who I have an immense amount of respect for, and he’s taken the occasion of the new Amazon Prime series centered on Philip K. Dick’s The Man in the High Castle to talk about Dick, reality, and politics.

I’ve always been a huge fan of that novel for precisely the reasons that Gray points out. It does not finish so much as end, and the book’s assertion that a person might not have a mandate and yet must act anyway has always resonated for me.

Read the piece here. Go buy a copy of The Man in the High Castle if you haven’t read it. It’s phenomenal.
