Philip K. Dick, The Man in the High Castle

Found this in the university library.  Realized I had never read Dick.  All books, or just this one, use abbreviated sentences?  Makes for interesting style. Noted.  Light rain falling in San Jose. Just south of setting of novel. San Francisco in alternative history. Nazis and Japan won the big one.  America divided into three occupation territories. Defeated. Insecure. What are we worth: Nothing.  But maybe. Deep inside us.  Like Bourbon.  Consult the I Ching.  Worth reading bad novel?  Can bad novel win prestigious prize? All timelines coexist.
