We Can Build You *pre-loved*
Louis Rosen and his partners sell people - ingeniously designed, historically authentic simulacra of personages such as Edwin M. Stanton and Abraham Lincoln. The problem is that the only prospective buyer is a rapacious billionaire whose plans for the simulacra could land Louis in jail. Then there's the added complication that someone--or something - like Abraham Lincoln may not want to be sold.
Is an electronic Lincoln any less alive than his creators? Is a machine that cares and suffers inferior to the woman Louis loves--a borderline psychopath who does neither? With irresistible momentum, intelligence, and wit, Philip K. Dick creates an arresting techno-thriller that suggests a marriage of Bladerunner and Barbarians at the Gate.
This is a pre-loved paperback of We Can Build You, by Philip K. Dick. The book was first published in 1972 and this is a 1977 edition. The book is in good condition, with some mild browning to the pages and a slight knock to the top edge of the spine.
