Millroy The Magician - THEROUX, Paul

Penguin, 1994, Paperback ..
Condition: Fine. Small tear to front cover.

When Jilly Farina walks into the tent at the Barnstable Country Fair to see Millroy the Magician her life is transformed. Fixing her with his steely, hypnotic gaze, Millroy performs miracles in front of her spellbound eyes. And when he 'magics' her into his trailer and tells her he will train her to be his assistant, for the first time in her lonely life Jilly feels safe. A magical of baffling talents, a vegetarian and a health fanatic with a mission to change the food habits of America, Millroy has the power to heal and to hypnotise. Through Jilly he finds the strength to preach his evangelical message. But as Millroy's Messianic fervour grows, so too do the doubts of Jilly, without whose soul and spirit Millroy cannot make magic.
