Luke Rhinehart Article

Our good friend George Cockcroft, the author of the book that inspired our show, dropped us an email recently about an article explaining how his book, The Dice Man, came into existence. The book was first published in 1971 by George under the pen name Luke Rhinehart andtells the story of a  psychiatrist who begins making life changing decisions based on the roll of a dice. The book was based on Cockcroft’s own experiences of using a dice to make decisions whilst studying psychology. The novel was noted for its subversive, anti- psychiatry sentiments and was consequently banned in several countries. The cover bore the confident sub header: “Few novels can change your life. This one will” and quickly became a modern cult classic.

Luke has sent us an interesting article about how he came to write the novel and his numerous adventures in doing so. Follow the link below to read in full.
