The Man Whose Teeth Were All Exactly Alike was written by Philip K. Dick in the winter and spring of 1960, in Point Reyes Station, California. In the sequence of Dick’s work, The Man Whose Teeth was written immediately after Confessions of a Crap Artist; the next book Dick wrote was The Man in the High Castle, the Hugo Award–winning science fiction novel that ushered in the next stage of Dick’s career. This novel, Dick said, is about Leo Runcible, “a brilliant, civicminded liberal Jew living in a rural WASP town in Marin County, California.” Runcible, a real estate agent involved in a local battle with a neighbor, finds what look like Neanderthal bones and dreams of rising real estate prices because of the publicity.

Praise for The Man Whose Teeth Were All Exactly Alike

Praise for The Man Whose Teeth Were All Exactly Alike:

“In 1981, Dick re-read his eleven unpublished novels and selected [The Man Whose Teeth Were All Exactly Alike] as his favorite of the lot…. It tells the story of an out-of-place Jewish realtor with a certain simple appeal. The hero’s principles seem strong and clear, if somewhat eccentric…a tragi-comedy where all involved trample blindly on each other’s sensibilities.”
—Locus

“Whether writing brilliantly idiosyncratic science fiction or uniquely Dickian contemporary novels, Philip K. Dick was a major American literary talent who deserves an even wider audience than the formidable one he reached in his lifetime. This novel may be (as Dick himself believed) the best of all his unpublished mainstream works.”
—Michael Bishop
