This author is one of the world's great sleight-of-hand artists. He is also a most unusual & talented scholar, specializing in the bizarre, exotic, & fantastic side of the human species. The youngest magician to have appeared on television, he has become well known for his astonishing stage show as well as for his cameos in such movies as Glengarry Glen Ross &, most recently, Boogie Nights. His unparalleled collection of books, posters, photographs, programs, broadsides, &, most important, data about unjustifiably forgotten entertainers all over the inspired world of sideshows, circuses, & singularly talented performers, Learned Pigs & Fireproof Women is history of the most unusual- & irresistible - sort.
