From an early age Franquin had been fascinated by hypnotism and, like his gypsy mother, had an uncanny knack of reading people's minds. With these talents and his showmanship he developed an entertainment that excited the curiosity of thousands. As a master showman, keeping up a ceaseless flow of speech, he enthralled his audiences with mind reading, memory skills and hypnotism. This is a fascinating book that describes a remarkable life and recreates the era of a great showman.
