This is the deluxe collector's limited edition which was signed by Jack Flosso and Gary Brown.

Hardbound, 215 pages.

"If there is a better all-around magician," master mentalist Joseph Dunninger wrote of Al Flosso, "I have yet to discover him." Combining subtle, sophisticated manipulations with his bold, gritty persona, Flosso's magic became legendary. Though he stood only 5'2", Flosso was a giant of the magic world.

The Coney Island Fakir is a remarkable book about a remarkable life. The book traces Flosso's fascinating career, from his days as a street-corner shill, carnival pitchman and sideshow magician to his work on Broadway, film and television. Lavishly illustrated with dozens of photos, The Coney Island Fakir provides a vivid portrait of this unique performer.

As an added bonus, this volume contains a reprint of Our Magic, produced by Flosso in the 1940's. Our Magic features classic tricks by Flosso, Al Baker, Ted Annemann and other top performers.
