KIRKUS REVIEW

Biography of a late 19th century medium whose abilities entranced -- and enraged -- first Americans, then European. Daniel Dunglas Home, kicked out of his aunt's house in Connecticut, became the favorite of English, French, Russian and Italian nobility, was the center of vast controversy, and maintained modest silence about his powers. Fascinating -- and fantastic reading; curious detail, but no explanations.
