DK Biography Series: Harry Houdini

$ 5.95

Harry Houdini died more than eighty years ago and yet he still fascinates people and is an icon for those who are interested in illusions and escape artistry. Just like in his tricks, he was not always what he seemed. Was he a fake or a genius? Was he who is said he was?

In a very short period of time Harry went from being a little known small time magician to being a star who traveled all over the world. With the help of his wife Bess he built an enormous following and created an image for himself which heightened his aura of mystery and intrigue. Harry would not share the secrets of how he was able to pull off his astonishing performances and many of them went with him to the grave.

Readers who enjoy the drama and excitement of magic shows will find this book interesting and enlightening. Well written and with lots of photographs to accompany the text, this is an excellent biography about a very intriguing man. By Vicki Cobb.
