Dr. Simon Carmel has written a beautiful, inspirational book about the lives of fifty-nine deaf magicians. Overcoming the challenge of living and performing in a soundless world with no patter, and using music they cannot hear, these wonder workers create magic moments with their gestures, facial expressions, and dexterity. Las Vegas illusionist Kevin James says this book is not only a great historical resource, but it illustrates many personal struggles and triumphs, as well. Softcover. 158 pages, large format.
