Houdini in latest Lapham's Quarterly

The Summer 2012 issue of Lapham's Quarterly contains an excerpt from Houdini's A Magician Among the Spirits.

Titled "Knowing When to Quit", Houdini tells the story of his "greatest feat of mystery" when he commanded a rain storm to start and stop several times during a 4th of July party at the home of his lawyer, Bernard Ernst.

Lapham's Quarterly is a literary journal edited by Lewis Lapham that collects fiction, nonfiction, poems, and essays from over four thousand years of history. Published four times a year, each issue adopts and explores a single theme. This latest issue is devoted to "Magic Shows".
