KIRKUS REVIEW

The autobiography of a Czechoslovakian born with paranormal powers of extra-sensory perception, this has the rather cautious endorsement of two members of the Society for Psychical Research. Taking himself much less seriously than many of his kind, Marion is almost offhand in his acceptance and practice of a gift which was to confound his parents, annoy his teachers, and later earn him considerable celebrity. Performing in music halls and night clubs, he later became a lecturer and confidential adviser, discusses here his abilities in the fields of telepathy, clairvoyance, prediction, and particularly crypt-aesthesia- the reconstruction of the identity of a person from a ring, a lock of hair, etc. He was to prevent the murder of an aerial artist; serve as a divining rod for a Roumanian oil man; predict the day of death of a Nazi official before the Party came to power; locate a missing girl from a voice on a record some twenty years later- these a few of his more amazing accomplishments. Whether you believe it or not (and there are many who do), there are many elements of fascination for a career which parallels that of Dunninger and which is never shrouded in the sham of the spiritist.
