Description

To Houdini, Doyle was a good fellow who was often fooled and would be fooled again. To Doyle, Houdini was a remarkable man concealing the light of great mediumistic gifts under the bushel of gold he received for his performances as an illusionist. Both men were children of inspiration. Houdini was illiterate, but had the genius of character and imagination. Doyle, author and dreamer, had culture and perception. This book sheds light upon two of the most fascinating men of the times.
