Carter Beats the Devil - hardcover

2001, ISBN: 0786867345

[SR: 2088805], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780786867349], Hyperion Books, Hyperion Books, Book, [PU: Hyperion Books], 2001-08-01, Hyperion Books, Looking for the best selection of Costumes for any occasion - then you have come to the right place. Choose this item made by the premier manufacturer for costumes props and theatrical wear. We supply ice shows circuses TV amusement parks Broadway and almost every major Hollywood movie studio with all their theatrical needs. From funny masks and accessories to unique life like mascot and animal costumes we have them all. Satisfaction Ensured. This 496 page fictional novel of the amazing Carter, a real magician who toured the world over in the early part of last century. Possibly more successful than many leading magicians of his time., With romance, magic and science as its central themes, Glen David Gold's impressive debut Carter Beats The Devil is an inspired delight, a dazzling combination of fact and fiction. Charles Carter is given his stage name "Carter the Great" by the legendary Harry Houdini and the jazz age of the early 1900s is clearly well researched, yet the romance and strong cast of characters must owe more to the imagination than to history. The novel begins in 1923 with the most daring performance of Carter's life. Unfortunately, two hours into the performance, US President Harding is dead and the magician must flee the country, pursued by the Secret Service. This is only an instalment in Carter's amazing life though as we are guided from his childhood, where both the family servant and a circus freak bullied him, to his rise to stardom and his eventual performance in front of the president. Subsequently, the protagonist is crippled by loneliness, widowed and hunted down by those who believe him a murderer and yet he rises again and again to delight and fulfil the highest expectations of his audience. The strong narrative and storyline make for a compelling read. And Carter is such a magical character that you cannot fail to be touched by him--loving whom he does and hating his enemies. This is an ambitious and compulsive novel and deserves all the praise that Carter himself received and more.
