If you enjoy Salman Rushdie, Nikolai Gogol, and other magic realism writers, you'll definitely want to give The Conjurer a try. Darrell Kastin does an exceptional job of weaving extraordinary stretches of imagination in with slices of everyday life on the Azores. This collection of stories is exotic and outlandish yet strangely grounded by a timeless sense of folk history. Each story stands tall on its own merit; together, they craft a colorful narrative that defies categorization. Within these pages you'll find small miracles, grand impossibilities, and earthy wisdom all wrapped in the guise of a modest tale. ( )
