Description:
In the beginning was Chance, and Chance was with God and Chance was God .... There was a man sent by Chance, whose name was Luke .... And Chance was made flesh ... and he dwelt among us, full of chaos, and falsehood and whim. from The Book of the Die

So begins this 1970s classic of sex, drugs, and, of course, dice. Bored psychiatrist Luke Rhinehart lives with his wife and two children in their 'slightly upper, slightly east' apartment in Manhattan. Dissatisfied with both Western and Eastern philosophies, alternately embracing the meaningfulness and meaninglessness of life, Luke's world is forever changed when he finds religion through the simple roll of the die and is 'stunned and converted as only the utterly bored can be'.

Let the dice decide This is the only path to liberation and truth for Dr. Rhinehart and his patients. It seems sex is always an option as they roll their way through therapy sessions, relationships, parenting even a mental institution breakout. Luke spreads his new religion with a hilarious combination of evangelical fervor and moral depravity, turning his life and in some ways the world on its ear. Because once you hand your life over to the dice, anything can happen.

A rollicking good read and an irreverent parody of American psychoanalytical culture, The Dice Man is entertaining, humorous, shocking, and subversive one of the international cult bestsellers of our time.
