Since The Dice Man, Luke Rhinehart has written four other acclaimed novels: Matari, Long Voyage Back, Adventures of Whim and The Search for the Dice Man. He lives in the United States.From Publishers Weekly:
The author of the 1960s cult classic The Dice Man has written a self-help companion volume to the underground novel. Luke Rhinehart's The Book of the Die: A Handbook of Dice Living features ancient proverbs, quotations from Asian philosophers, biblical parables and his own Eastern-influenced sketches and aphorisms, all championing a spontaneous, impulsive lifestyle ruled at least in part by chance rather than social rules and expectations. Among the motley, lighthearted offerings is the running story of a mythic character called Whim, who learns to lead a life of the die, as well as suggested dice games for readers that promote spiritual rather than financial growth.
