    Sarajevo, in the 1990s, is a hellish place. The ongoing war devours human life, tears families apart and transforms even banal routines, such as acquiring water, into life-threatening expeditions. Day after day, a cellist stations himself in the midst of the devastation, defying the ever-present snipers to play tributes to victims of a massacre. A true story of a cellist's resistance helps to form this pivotal event in Steven Galloway's extraordinary novel.

    The Confabulist is a clever , entertaining, and suspenseful narrative that weaves together the rise and fall of world-famous Harry Houdini with the surprising story of Martin Strauss, an unknown man whose fate seems forever tied to the magician’s in a way that will ultimately startle and amaze. It is at once a vivid portrait of an alluring, late-19th/early-20th-century world; a front-row seat to a world-class magic show; and an unexpected love story. In the end, the book is a kind of magic trick in itself: There is much more to Martin than meets the eye.

    Snipers in the hills overlook half the intersections in Sarajevo. One man, a cellist, defies this game of "Sarajevo Roulette". In memory of the city's dead, for two consecutive days, he becomes a sitting target as he plays Albinoni's "Adagio" in the street outside his building. But he is unaware that one young woman observes his performance with unflinching attention... a counter sniper, detailed to protect him from enemy marksmen.
