Information
'An utterly realistic novel about an alien human on Earth' Norman Spinrad

On his first day on Earth, Thomas J. Newton walks into a small Kentucky town to sell a gold ring for $60. Yet this tall, unnaturally frail and strange man needs much more money than this to achieve his ultimate aims. By licensing the plans for unimaginably advanced technology he makes himself a fortune of hundreds of millions of dollars – but in doing so becomes an object of fascination, and even greater suspicion, for others.

The Man Who Fell to Earth is a science-fiction classic – a sad, thoughtful allegory of mistrust and sacrifice.
