Books
Sweeping between Prague during World War II and modern-day Los Angeles, "The Trick is a lyrical, uplifting, and funny story that will tug at all of your heartstrings" (Armando Lucas Correa, bestselling author of The German Girl) that follows a young boy seeking out a cynical, old magician in the hopes that his spells might keep his family together. In 1934, a rabbi's son in Prague joins a traveling circus, becomes a magician, and raises to fame under the stage name the Great Zabbatini, just as Europe descends into World War II. When Zabbatini is discovered to be a Jew, his battered trunk full of magic tricks becomes his only hope for survival.
