"One Toss of the Dice: The Incredible Story of How a Poem Made Us Modern" by R. Howard Bloch. It was, improbably, the forerunner of our digital age: a French poem about a shipwreck published in 1897 that with its mind-bending possibilities of being read up and down, backward and forward, even sideways, launched modernism. Stephane Mallarme's "One Toss of the Dice," a daring, 20-page epic of ruin and recovery, provides an epochal "tipping point," defining the spirit of the age and anticipating radical thinkers of the 20th century, from Albert Einstein to T. S. Eliot.
