A man enters the android-making business and falls in love with a mysterious woman in this novel from the author ofDo Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

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, they are 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.

'In his top form, Philip K. Dick rivals Kurt Vonnegut.'—New York Times
