Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The Confabulist by Steven Galloway is a fictionalized story of Harry Houdini and a man named Martin Strauss. The question what is real and what is an illusion lies at the heart of this book. The book has a magical quality about it and a circular approach weaving past and present and reality and illusion to the point that the lines between them are blurred.
