Hemingway kept 'Houdini' at hand

Our friend Scott Wells of The Magic Word Podcast recently visited the home of Ernest Hemingway in Havana, Cuba. Looks like "Papa" keep reading material at hand for all occasions. Notice anything of interest on the top shelf of his bathroom bookcase?

Click to enlarge.

That's a copy of Houdini: The Man Who Walked Through Walls by William Lindsey Gresham. The book was released in 1959 and was the definitive Houdini biography of the day. I can certainly understand the attraction Houdini held for Hemingway.

Be sure and check out the The Magic Word Podcast where you can enjoy the full story of Scott's magical Cuban adventure.
