Publisher's Summary

An early and daring novel from the Hugo Award-winning author about a young woman caught up in the glamor and dangers of 1950s California

Mary Anne Reynolds is young, vulnerable, and looking for love in Pacific Park, California. During her brief affairs with a middle-aged record shop owner and then a black blues singer, she seems to only succeed in offending the people living in the small-town of Pacific Park, both by her choice of lifestyle and choice of suitors. And while she stumbles through her various relationships and faces her overwhelming need to get out of town, Mary Anne shines as a "forerunner of the liberated sixties woman" (Library Journal) in this novel by the late prolific novelist, Philip K. Dick.

    "Pointless book"

    I try and listen to all of Dick's books but this is the worst story in his collection. At least so far. The main character, "Mary Ann" is a useless selfish person, and the book tells about her misadventures. The book introduces several other characters, most of them she uses and takes advantage of. I listened all the way to the end hoping there would be a point to this drivel. This book starts nowhere and ends nowhere. Do not waste your money on this junk.

    Oh ya, I almost forgot. The reader is also pathetic.
