Praise

“Houdini was the scourge of spiritualists.” The Wall Street Journal

“There is no trick of the recognized masters, from Cagliostro’s magic mirror to Kellar’s Hindoo lamp and Maskelyne and Devant’s Haunted Window, that Houdini did not succeed in fathoming and, when he liked, duplicating.”  The New York Times

“He was the wonder of the world in an old world hungry for wonders. . . He was the embodiment of something incredible. . . He came to represent the sum of all amazements.” —The Guardian

“A master of cunning and endurance.” —NPR

“He remains a mystery. His naivete and his shrewdness, his shyness and his exhibitionism, his kindness and his unforgiving antagonisms proclaim a complicated and unknowable man.” —New York Review of Books

“He seemed to express in his whole being and in his whole deportment: ‘I am who I am. I am the greatest. I am Harry Houdini.'”  —E.L. Doctorow

“Houdini is a witty writer and writes unselfconsciously about subjects that surely would have scandalized his contemporaries.” —Reference and Research Book News
