The Dice Man's son must roll the dice himself as his neat and orderly world begins to crumble. Larry Rhinehart is the son of the renegade psychiatrist Luke Rhinehart, who introduced the world to dice-living and dice therapy, where decisions are made not by the self but by the roll of a die. Since his father deserted him when he was still a child, Larry has bitterly rejected everything his father stood for. He has embraced order and control. Now a wealthy Wall Street analyst, he is about to marry the boss's daughter, and become a good deal wealthier. Then Homeland Security shows up in Larry’s office searching for his father, who is suspected of being behind acts of cyber warfare against government, banking and Wall Street interests. Larry's carefully organized world begins to crumble. Forced to try find his father before the government can, his search is made in the company of Kim, a sexy admirer of Luke’s. His quest takes him to Lukedom, a Dice Commune where everyone changes roles every day—to Larry’s own dicing, which leads to love, a broken engagement, rigging the stock market—and total chaos. Larry’s search is by turns funny, moving, and erotic. By the time he finally confronts his father he has been profoundly and hilariously changed and his previously successful, conservative life has been turned on its head.

Do you look for a change? Would you love to be someone different? Do you dream of exploring every aspect of your personality? The Dice House gives people the chance to do just that. Here in Dr. Ratner's commune, patients surrender all their decisions to the will of the dice. Inner fantasies turn into thrilling realities, and all that is imaginable become instantly possible.

Inspired by Luke Rhinehart's The Dice Man, Paul Lucas takes a look at life with the dice.

"Sut Lovingood's Nat'ral Born Yarnspinner: Essays on George Washington Harris is the first collection of critical commentary and new scholarship to be published on the east Tennessee, antebellum comic writer who was famous for creating the character of Sut Lovingood. The collection both recognizes and reconfirms the status of Harris as one of the most important antebellum comic writers by bringing together new essays with essential biographical information and representative commentary from the past. Anyone wishing to understand Harris and his place within the tradition of American humor will want to read this book." "Born in Allegheny, Pennsylvania, Harris (1814-1869) spent most of his life in Knoxville, Tennessee. He served as captain on a Tennessee River steamboat, tried his hand at large-scale farming, and operated a metal working and jewelry shop. While on the farm he began to experiment with a variety of literary forms, and by 1854 he introduced Sut Lovingood, a youthful and "nat'ral born durn'd fool" from Tennessee. Throughout the 1850s Harris created a variety of adventures for Sut that were extremely popular and often reprinted. Many of these Sut stories were included in his only book collection (Sut Lovingood. Yarns Spun by a "Nat'ral Born Durn'd Fool"), which was first published in 1867 and remained continuously in print until 1925. In his masterful use of dialect, striking control of metaphor and imagery, and the creation of explosive action, Harris was to have no match until Mark Twain and William Faulkner, both of whom read Harris with great appreciation."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
