Houdini appears in The New Yorker and Skeptic

Print media is still wild about Harry with two significant Houdini pieces in the March editions of The New Yorker and Skeptic magazines.

The New Yorker article is by David Denby and offers a very well-written profile of Houdini's art and career with references to the new books, The Life and Afterlife of Harry Houdini by Joe Posnanki and Adam Begley's Houdini: The Elusive American. It appears in the March 30, 2020 issue, but it can also be read online HERE.

In Skeptic Michelle Ainsworth gives a well-balanced review of Joe Posnanski's The Life and Afterlife of Harry Houdini. Unfortunately, that is not available to read online, but you can buy individual issues or subscribe via the Skeptic website.

The Wall Street Journal also recently published a combo review of the Posnanski and Begley books  by Robert Wilson in their March 14-15 issue. For subscribers you can read it HERE.

  1. The cover of New Yorker is unsettling. An empty Grand Central Station.
