The Dice Man
First US edition of Rhinehart's cult classic
First US edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 23.5 × 15.5cm, 305pp.
The Dice Man tells the story of a psychiatrist named Luke Rhinehart who, feeling bored and unfulfilled in life, starts making decisions based on the roll of a die. Along the way, there is sex, rape, murder, "dice parties", breakouts by psychiatric patients, and various corporate and governmental machines being put into a spin. There is also a description of the cult that starts to develop around the man, and the psychological research he initiates, such as the "Fuck without Fear for Fun and Profit" program.
A good sound copy but with some wear. The book has foxing to the pages' top edge, and a few spots to the fore edge. Some light bumping to the board edges and a previous owner's inscription to the ffep. The dustwrapper is a little worn to the edges with small nicks and tears, and is creased to the front flap. However, it has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
