The Magician can dazzle the crowds with his sleight of hand, climb to any height, open any lock. Fearlessly, he does death-defying tricks in theaters all over Poland. At home, his sweet Jewish wife waits for him to return from the city. In the city, his adoring mistresses wait for him to return from home. He holds the key to all hearts, but his own is beset with confusion.

Complex Masterpiece

A complex masterwork of fiction and an amazing meditation on the nature of religion and Jewishness in Europe and the modern age. I couldn't stop listening to it all the way through. The reader does a compelling and highly entertaining job, and really brings the characters to life in a way that absolutely fits the story.

Singer at his best

He's always at his best, so my title is misleading and true at the same time, which is a way of saying Magician is filled with ambiguity and paradox.
