While Confessions of A Crap Artist is constantly reffered to as one of Dick's mainstream novels, it deals with many of the same issues tackled by his science fiction.
His characters are perhaps more well developed here than in some of his earlier science fiction novels, but they are similar to characters you might find in any (and all) his works. Dick dwells on issues of alienation, inter-personal struggles between dominant and submisive personality types and the huge gaps in understanding between people who otherwise would be thought to be quite close to each other.
This is one of his more powerfull works as far as exploration of these issues goes, and I would recomend it to any PKD fan.

There are no aliens or time travel in this novel, but that doesn't mean this book isn't without Dickian genius. In _Confessions_, Dick uses multiple POVs -- two first-person (by Jack and Fay) and two third-person narrations (in the minds of Charlie and Nate) -- and does it without even telling us (unlike Faulkner in As I Lay Dying). In the beginning it sort of comes as a shock, but you get used to it quite nicely, and Dick does a good job of sticking to the voice.
As far as the plot was concerned, it's nothing like Dick's sci-fi novels -- fairly straightforward, even simplistic, you might say: the story of Jack, the brother of Fay, who stays with Fay and Charlie and gradually learns that maybe he isn't so bad off after all compared to these "sane" people. I think the ending comes a little too quickly and easily, but overall, it's a solid effort.
After having read now about ten Dick novels, I think it can be safely said that he was no real fan of women. I believe Dick's women by and large tend to be deceptive, nasty creatures, Fay being perhaps the worst of the lot.

Von Ein Kunde am 6. Mai 1997
Format: Taschenbuch
The thing about Mr. Dick is that everyone has seen BLADE RUNNER and then they run out and buy one of his books. He is forever trapped by his absolutely stunning Sci-Fi (not that that is a drawback). However, with CONFESSIONS we see a side of Mr. Dick that is frequently overlooked: we see an attention to human suffering and confusion that would put him on par with an Updike or a Baxter as a student of the human condition. And that is the true genius of the man. When we read CONFESSIONS we see reality disguised as a Sci-Fi novel. We see a powerful literary voice that transcends genre and speaks to the human heart. We see that part of Mr. Dick that gave spark and life to the imaginative narratives of his other novels, without which they would have been nothing but dime store ramblings. His science is a highly stylized body for his work, powerful and compelling, but this fiction, this human fiction, is the work's soul.
Put simply, if all of the works of the Twentieth Century are destroyed except for CONFESSIONS, scholars will look back on that one remnant and they will say "There was a great and secret literature in those days. If all books were as great as this one then we weep at the loss. We weep at the loss." That Mr. Dick has passed on, denying us any more CONFESSIONS, is enough to make me weep as well.

Those familiar with Dick's work will enjoy this. And new-comer's to Dick's style (Or Sci-Fi entirely) will become thirsty for more. Chronicalling the (supposed) social misfit, Jack Isidore, as he speaks his mind about science, life, and his family. In Berkley (where most of Dick's work takes place), California, Jack resides and lives, until he is taken in by his sibling, and brother-in -law. There, begins a story that raises intriguing questions, affairs, madness, and life as a supposed misfit. After reading this, you WILL know Jack Isidore. Warning: This book will stick with you for a long time! Also, if you get a chance, look into the movie based on this book: Barjo, the 1993 French film.NOTE:NEVER LISTEN TO THE DESCRIPTION OF PHILIP K. DICK's BOOKS, THAT ARE ON THE BACK. FOR SOME REASON, THEY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE STORY, ESPECIALLY "WE CAN BUILD YOU". The backs make each book sound like every other crappy second-rate sci-fi book. THEY ARE NOT.

Readers of "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" will recognize the character of Jack Isidore right off. He plays a very similar role in this book as that one; in both places he is a semi-autistic outcast who obsesses over religion (in "Androids") and the out-of-the-ordinary. The differences are:1. "Crap Artist," though not released until 1975, was written in 1959, nine years before "Androids" and 2. This is not a science fiction novel, per se.

Indeed, here we see Dick writing about the obsessions and personality disorders of the every-day man. He writes it in Faulkner-fashion; letting his characters trade off first person accounts. Jack is only one of them. The tale of spouse abuse, UFO-worshipping, deception, and modern convenience is brilliant. Had Dick refined a few of the early chapters, it would have been perfect. A dark, and overlooked treasure
