Summary
MODERN & CONTEMPORARY FICTION (POST C 1945). When Dr. Jim Parsons awakens after a car accident, he finds himself in a future populated almost entirely by the young. But for the young to keep running the world, death is fetishized, and those who survive to old age are put down. In such a world, Parsons with his innate desire to save lives is a criminal and an outcast. For one revolutionary group, however, he may be just the savior they need to heal and revive their cryogenically frozen leader. When he and the group journey to sixteenth-century California, what they find causes them to question what they know about history and the underpinnings of their society. With the jarring immediacy of a car crash, Philip K. Dick throws both the listener and the protagonist of Dr. Futurity into a bizarre future where healing is a crime and youth rules."
