Dice Man

Front Cover
Harry N. Abrams, 1. mai 1998 - 320 pages
Bored psychiatrist Luke Rhinehart lives with his wife and two children in their apartment in Manhattan. Dissatisfied with both Western and Eastern philosopies' alternate embrace of the meaningful and the meaningless, Luke is forever changed when he finds religion through a simple roll of the dice. Rhinehart and his patients soon find that the only path to salvation is in letting the dice decide. Rolling his way through sex, drugs, and therapy, Luke spreads his new religion with a hilarious combination of evangelical fervor and moral depravity, turning his life - and the world - on its head. Once you hand your life over the dice, anything can happen. A rollicking good read and an irreverent parody of American psycho-analytical culture, "The Dice Man" is entertraining, humorous, shocking, and subversise - one of the international cult bestesellers of our time.
