Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said

Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said is a 1974 science fiction novel by Philip K. Dick about a genetically enhanced pop singer and television star who loses his identity overnight. The story is set in a futuristic dystopia, where America has become a police state after a Second Civil War.

After his former lover throws a Callisto-based parasitic lifeform at him, celebrity entertainer Jason Taverner wakes up to find himself to be completely unknown to the outside world. He has no identification, there is no record of him in the extensive databases of the police government, and neither his friends nor his former fans have any memory of him. As an ex-celebrity and an ex-citizen, he has real problems. These are exacerbated for him as a “Six”, a highly rated stratum of covert genetic engineering of humans that apparently began in the 1940s.
