The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick

I bought this Penguin UK edition of this PKD novel at the great Glass Eye Books in Florence, MA--while a little more mainstream than some of Dick's brain-melters (this is the only way I can describe what happened to me while reading Ubik, and I assure you I was sober), it's still paranoid enough to feel like classic Philip K. Dick (which it is).

Interestingly enough, it seems that the man pictured on the back is not Philip K. Dick, but fellow science fiction writer Ted White, whose picture Dick sent to the publisher as a joke.
