Breaking Our Magic Wands, Robert E. Neale

$20.00

When magicians die it is customary these to break a wand to symbolize the end of their magic. But as Shakespeare’s Prospero shows, there might be other reasons or seasons to break our magic wands. What might they be? What options do we have for ending our time with magic?

In this book of heartfelt insight, Robert E. Neale, one of magic’s deepest thinkers and now eighty-eight years old, playfully explores our options through 6 unpublished performance pieces and 4 short essays.

And, as you will quickly discover, this book about breaking wands is Bob Neale’s own performance of this powerful ritual—his swan song and gift to magicians everywhere.

Perfect bound: 8.5" x 11", 56 pages
