No Ordinary Magic is the vivid portrait of a man who reinvented himself through the art of magic, as told through the lens of the young woman who loved him.

At twenty-five, Eileen McFalls embarked on an unconventional journey after meeting an amazing street magician. While never a household name, Jim Cellini was a legend in the magic world, renowned for his wit and skill when performing the impossible. During the eighties the two trekked across the United States, Canada, Great Britain, and Europe, encountering free spirits, misfits, and royalty. A rollicking read full of tender and poignant moments, No Ordinary Magic recounts an uncommon life on the fringe.
