Description: Ann Patchett's first two novels, The Patron Saint of Liars and Taft, immediately brought her a national audience and recognition of her arrival as a writer blessed with original talents. Her stature has now been secured with The Magician's Assistant, a wise and heartfelt novel that captured the hearts of readers across the country. It is a magic show, both literally and figuratively, where love defies logic and commitments last longer than a lifetime.

When the magician Parsifal dies, his assistant, Sabine, who was also for only the last few months of his life married to Parsifal, must sort out the emotional baggage she inherits. For Parsifal was in love with Phan, another man. Sabine is left to unravel their secrets, and the adventure she embarks upon, taking her from sunny Los Angeles to the bitterly windswept plains of winterbound Nebraska, will work its own magic on her. Told with a powerful sense of character, and in Patchett's beautiful, resonant prose, Sabine's tale will capture the heart of its readers just as Sabine herself was captured by her quest.
