"The Man in the High Castle" explores what the present in the United States might look like if the Allies had lost World War II. About 20 years after the defeat, the United States is divided by the victors of the war, Japan and Germany. The tensions between the two hegemonic powers continue to increase and lead to conflicts in the western United States. We like to keep our brief plot outlines super-brief, but this is a weird book with lots of plots. Even though the story takes place in 1962(ish), we're tempted to start off with the assassination of FDR in 1933. But that's all background, so check for more on that (including the fact that Canada has become a safe haven for comedians, which seems very… accurate to us) There are three main plots told from seven points-of-view, so this can get confusing. And on top of that, they all intertwine eventually. So let's get our graph paper to help you keep track of this. Buckle yourself in for a weird ride.
