Interview With Tessa Dick on Dickien.fr

French Dick-head blogger Etienne Barillier recently interviewed Philip K Dick's fifth wife Tessa. The article includes some great photographs I've never seen before and some interesting insight from Tessa. Check it out here.

I also recommend reading the interview with Anne Mini, the daughter of Philip K. Dick''s second husband, at the same site, as she has a very interesting perspective to share about the man she knew.

She speaks of a personal memoir she has written in which she presents her own view of Dick, and reveals that the publication of the memoir has been blocked due to threat of legal action by the Philip K. Dick estate.

I don't understand how anyone--even family members--can, in essence, trademark a person's life. If Ms. Mini is writing a personal memoir of her life and of the people she has known, including Philip K.Dick, it seems to me she should have full legal right to publish her memoir without interference.

First, you mean dsughter of the WIFE, not husband. Second, she never knew Phil. It was a total fantasy. We did not even have a telephone when she claims that she was to Phil on the phone!

Thank you for correcting my typo in writing "husband" for "wife." As for your assertion that this is a fantasy of Ms. Mini's, well, how can I know? You don't identify yourself to lend credence to your claim. Your sentence, "We did not even have a telephone...etc." would lead one to belief you are one of Dick's later wifes or children, but why should I accept your anonymous claim over her more public and (I presume) easily corroborated or repudiated statements?

Now, you may be entirely correct and truthful that Ms. Mini is fabricating a friendship between herself and Phil Dick that never existed, I can't know, of course. I took the published interview with her on good faith, but I guess the truth remains to be proven...by someone.

That should be "wives," not "wifes." Excuse me.

sorry for my many typos -- made in haste, but at least I did not write "husband" instead of "wife" -- I made an anonymous post because it is so difficult to log in when the pages are loading slowly and I have other things to do
-- she did not know my husband

Buy last chaos gold is the chance. Since I buy last chaos gold ; I had not had the bad memory. At present, I want to say thanks to the people who stole my account, if he did not to do that, I would not play it, I would not have lastchaos gold . Although I have little lastchaos money , I will on the way of the game for long time. I am a pessimistic person, but when I have cheap lastchaos gold , it changes my attitude of life.
