Philip K. Dick, , written 1953-55, first published 1987.
Mary Anne Reynolds yearns to escape the confines of Pacific Park, California; of her abusive father; and of her stifling existence. Her struggle for identity leads her to the California jazz scene, to several older men, and to a reality as strange and gripping as any of Philip Dick’s science fiction. Mary and the Giant is a deeply affecting tale of hope and tragedy as seen through the eyes of a frighteningly real young woman.
