       Additional Information  
      P. P. Layouts makes Perky Pat, a doll, and her miniaturized homes, accessories - and boyfriend. It also, secretly, makes Can-D, a drug that enables users to inhabit the minds, and bodies, of the dolls. People can live out their fantasies denied them in a hostile world. When Palmer Eldritch, an exiled businessman, returns from a distant galaxy with a new legal drug, P. P. Layouts' Iucrative monopoly is threatened. Not only that, Eldritch claims that users of his drug can spend years in their illusory dimension and never lose a second of earth time. But they would have to pay a terrible price for their immortality - Palmer Eldritch will enter, control and be a god in everyone's private universe - a universe from which there is no escape
