Protagonist Bob Arctor leads a double life as a Substance D user and an undercover agent spying on his household. The novel delves deep into themes of identity confusion, surveillance, societal disillusionment, and the tragedy of drug addiction, reflecting Dick's own personal struggles and observations. Awarded the British Science Fiction Association Award for Best Novel in 1978, it later inspired a film adaptation in 2006, underlining its significant influence in speculative and dystopian literature.
