  • Book Talk: Steven Galloway on magic, memories and Houdini Thu, Jun 19, 2014

    By Nicholas P. Brown NEW YORK (Reuters) - Canadian author Steven Galloway explores the fickle nature of memory in "The Confabulist," his book about the life and death of one of the world's most famous magicians, Harry Houdini. The book's main character, Martin Strauss, reflects on a life in which he believes he killed the Hungarian-American escape artist. Both Houdini, who died suddenly in 1926 of a ruptured appendix after being punched repeatedly in the stomach, and Strauss narrate parts of the tale in which fact and fiction intermingle and memories cannot be trusted. Galloway, 38, gained fame for his 2008 bestseller, "The Cellist of Sarajevo," set during that city’s siege in the mid-1990s. More »
