Inhaltsangabe: In this lyrical and moving novel, Philip K. Dick intertwines the story of a toxic love affair with one about sentient robots, and unflinchingly views it all through the prism of mental illness ? which spares neither human nor robot. The end result is one of Dick?s most quietly powerful works. When Louis Rosen?s electronic-organ company builds a pitch-perfect robotic replica of Abraham Lincoln, the firm is pulled into the orbit of a shady businessman, who is looking to use Lincoln for his own profit. Meanwhile, Rosen seeks Lincoln?s advice as he woos a woman incapable of understanding human emotions ? someone who may be even more robotic than Lincoln?s replica.
Inhaltsangabe: Some people are not people, they are simulacra...yet they can be more human than some other people who are people. Philip Dick explores his familiar theme, 'What is human?'
