Growing up PKD

Most of us have been in a Philip K. Dick frame of mind at one time or another. His daughter, Isa, talks about what it was like to have PKD as a father:

My mother, Nancy Hackett, and he divorced when I was only three and half years old. Nonetheless, I continued to see him until his death. I remember especially his sense of humor. He had a unique way to distance himself. He made me laugh my heart out. And that will remain always there, at the bottom of my heart. All my childhood, I was aware that my father was a writer. However, every time I entered a bookstore, and that I looked for his books, I could not find any. Soon, I had the strange feeling that if one day I ended up seeing one of them, I would also become real.

Like father, like daughter. Here’s the entire interview.
