The Confabulist by Steven Galloway

My rating: 2.0

This is the life of Harry Houdini - as well as the reveal behind each of his tricks. He tells of Houdini's magic (and how he did each trick) as well as his marriage and possibly his exploits as an international spy.

I loved Galloway's The Cellist of Sarajevo novel but found that this novel just didn't capture me. This was fiction but was written as non-fiction. Unless you are interested in the magic behind the tricks, I don't think this book had much to offer.
