Not too long from now, when exiles from a blistering Earth huddle miserably in Martian colonies, the only things that make life bearable are the drugs. Can-D "translates" those who take it into the bodies of Barbie-like dolls and opens up an idyllic world. Now there's competition from the mysterious Palmer Eldritch: a substance called Chew-Z, marketed under the slogan "God promises eternal life. We can deliver it." The question is: What kind of eternity? And who—or what—is the deliverer? This more addictive experience might bring users closer to God, but in a world where everyone is tripping, no promises can be taken at face value.

Dick explores mysteries that were once the property of St. Paul and Aquinas. His wit, compassion, and knife-edged irony make this novel moving as well as genuinely visionary.
