Marco's Comments:
Interesting auto-biography of Dai Vernon, from tapes he made for Richard Buffum. Most of his stories have been re-used by other authors who dealt with Vernon's biography (David Ben, Karl Johnson), but some where unknown to me. A nice read, which shows the passion and obsession Vernon had for magic all his life.
