Philip K. Dick
A Scanner Darkly
1977

Dick's novel of drug abuse and paranoia feeds on itself like a serpent swallowing its own tail: an undercover cop maintains surveillance on himself; a rehab program funds its operations by distributing narcotics. In an author's note Dick writes "Drug misuse is not a disease, it is a decision, like the decision to step out in front of a moving car."
