In Pursuit of Valis:

Selections from the Exegesis, by Philip K. Dick

Dick’s wealth of knowledge on the subjects of philosophy, religion, and science inform the work throughout.
Absolutely stultifying, brilliant, repetitive, and contradictory. It just might contain the secret of the universe. — Jonathan Lethem
