Synopsis: As monstrous mutants roam freely in post-nuclear America, a government agency, the DCA, is formed to get rid of them. But also targeted is eighteen-year-old Cris Johnson. He is a perfect specimen of young manhood, an icon of masculine beauty. He is the golden man. The DCA's fear that he might reproduce a new race of golden men with super-human survival skills makes his destruction paramount.

Additional notes: The book cover depicted is from a collection of short stories by Philip K. Dick, published in 1980, that included The Golden Man. The information link is to a more recent edition of the book.
