For a dramatic reading from an acclaimed new novel
Starring Hollywood legends Ed Asner and Richard Benjamin joined by Patty McCormack, Fred Melamed, and Michael Laskin
The Magiker is a powerful tale of a man connecting for the
first time with his Judaism against a background of forbidden mysticism
and love beyond time. Psychiatrist Harris Strider was raised without any
sense of religion, but when troubled socialite Barbara Warren becomes
his patient, he is plunged into the world of Kabbalah, which threatens
his marriage, his practice, and his sanity. Looming large is the
presence of the long-dead Magiker Rebbe, with whom Strider discovers he
has a mysterious and secret link.
Actor Elliott Gould has said:
“Charles Dennis is a
gifted farceur and his latest novel, The Magiker, reflects that talent.
It’s as though Sigmund Freud and Kurt Vonnegut have met the Marx
Brothers. The Magiker is outrageous, mysterious, funny, sexy, and
Charles Dennis, author, screenwriter, playwright, actor, voice over
artist, and winner of the Samuel Fuller Guerrilla Filmmaker Award is
working on his thirteenth novel.
