golden state, by ben winters

A Philip K. Dick-inflected novel about a future California where it’s illegal to lie. Follows a Speculator, a lie-law enforcer who can literally see lies. Most powerful is the suggestion that people who haven’t reckoned the truth for themselves, who’ve had it dictated by law, have the weakest grasp on what’s true.
