THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE: GAMEBOOK. David Maroto. Jap Sam Books, Heijningen, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 352 pp. 20 x 12 cm. ISBN 9789490322496 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Part story, part game, The Wheel of Fortune, written and illustrated with drawings by Spanish visual artist David Maroto, is a book with a difference--one in which the reader becomes the protagonist. Inspired by Proust's In Search of Lost Time, Dostoyevsky's The Gambler and the gamebook "Choose Your Own Adventure" popular in the early 1990s, this gamebook is the basis for Decide Your Destiny, a collective event for 52 players. Set in a hotel casino on the coast of Normandy, the narrative changes according to the reader's decisions and interactions with characters in the book. Different games are played in the story like French roulette--and Russian roulette. Death, chance, desire and arcane knowledge unfold as the reader/performer explores multiple narrative paths. Maroto, who also created The Book Lovers, a project on artist novels, creates art in the form of games and novels and is currently working in Scotland.
