WHIM tells the story of a very Magical Indian boy who finds that he has been sent to earth by his Father Lord Chance to discover the Big U.T.—ultimate truth. As a high school football star just discovering sex, Whim is distracted from his quest by being in love with the brainy, sexy but very moral Dawn, and also by his rival Billy Best, who wants to discover u.t. so he can market it and make a bundle. The novel is filled with Zen-like encounters between Whim and his Montauk mentor Grain-of-Sand; Narsufin, the great black Sufi sage famous for his hook shot; and the Abominable Snowman Sage of the Himalayas. In the end Whim finds his u.t., saves the Montauk nation, and wins the heart (and all other bodily parts) of his beloved Dawn.

WHIM is a comic-philosophical sequel to THE DICE MAN. But this time, instead of a Lucifer loose in the world as with the character of Luke in THE DICE MAN, we have an innocent embodiment of Chance in the character of Whim. Like THE DICE MAN, WHIM is an hilarious comedy of ideas and actions, this time about how foolishly humans can behave as they go off on a seemingly noble quest.About the Author:
Luke Rhinehart is the internationally acclaimed author of The Dice Man and six other books. The Dice Man, cited by a BBC production as one of the fifty most influential books of the last half-century, was honored by Loaded Magazine in 1999 as the 'Novel of the Century.' It has been an international best seller for thirty years and is selling more copies now than ever. In the last few years three documentaries have been shot about Luke or people influenced by the book, three stage plays based loosely on Luke's work have toured the U.K., and the six-part TV series Dice will be aired later this year. His other books include:WHIM, a comic novel about a Magical teenager sent to earth by the Lord Chance on a quest for U.T.--ultimate truth.WHITE WIND, BLACK RIDER, a dramatic and moving story of three samurai and their conflicting and deadly loves for the beautiful Matari.THE BOOK OF THE DIE, a collection of essays, parables, proverbs, film scenes and stories that dramatize his unique ideas; and And LONG VOYAGE BACK, an extraordinary story of people fleeing by sailboat from a nuclear holocaust.Visit Luke at www.lukerhinehart.net.
