Description
"Flamboyant and preposterous. [Tahir Shah] is an uproariously funny writer, and his account of pursuing his boyhood dream of becoming a magician makes for a bedlam-strewn circus of a book. [This] may, at first glance, seem to belong on the fiction shelf, given its plethora of coincidences and the fantasticality of many of its episodes. Yet on the few occasions when I could tear myself away long enough to spot-check its accuracy (about the existence, say, of a live-fish-swallowing asthma cure in Hyderabad), the author turned out to be doing no more than his reportorial duty. The result is a pleasurably picaresque epic, an exuberant plunge into 'an excess of sages, swamis and eccentrics'."NYTimes
