Lathe of Heaven is a bit too much of a pkd tribute to be in my top le guin, though as such a tribute it is excellent. Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH getting my vote as an all time great kids book.

PKD without the hint of whining misogyny though.

(he didn't always do that: for inst., Mary of Mary And The Giant is one no-b.s. tough cookie, and he seems to approve) Lathe of Heaven was also a 70s PBS movie or mini-series; I've watched some of it on YouTube.

It's funny what you wrote about The Abortion, Camaraderie, because that was my first Brautigan book. We read it aloud to each other at my nerdy summer camp when I was 15, totally changed my life. (I think Confederate General from Big Sur is my fave Brautigan, tho)

I haven't read the book, but the film adaptation by Werner Schroeter is highly unusual and worth seeing.
