Subtitled: 'Jack Isidore (Of Seville, Calif.): A Chronicle of Verified Scientific Fact, 1945-1959'
One of Philip K. Dick's contemporary fiction novels, involving a struggling farm family in 1950's California. Jack Isidore is a crap artist—an oddball, pack rat, crackpot, science fiction nut. Much of the novel is a description of his sister and brother-in-law's troubled marriage, viewed from Jack's unique perspective.
In 1992 the book was adapted to film by director Jérôme Boivin as Confessions d'un Barjo.
