At once entertaining and suspenseful, historically rich and cleverly told, The Confabulist is an novel of magic and memory, truth and illusion, and the ways that love, hope, grief, and imagination can - for better or for worse - alter what we perceive and what we believe."
The Confabulist was first released in Canada and the U.S. in May and has received a lot of press and excellent reviews. With its quality writing and clever use of facts and popular conspiracy theories, I think of this book as The Da Vinci Code of Houdini fiction. And check out how the publisher sent me a review copy. Love it!
