The Magician's Assistant (Hardcover)
I was totally enchanted by this story: A woman becomes an assistant to
her very talented and handsome Magician Husband who happens to be gay.
The story is unusual but very poignant. After her husband dies, the main
character finds out she has an estranged family which she knew nothing
about. Ann Patchett has a tremendous gift for pulling you into a story
and keeping you there. I highly recommend.
A secretive magician's death becomes the catalyst for his partner's journey of self-discovery in this enchanting book (San Francisco Chronicle) that is something of a magic trick in itself-a 1990s love story with the grace and charm of a nineteenth-century novel (Newsweek).
