Neil Patrick Harris is really blowing the curve for the rest of us. He's won a Tony award, several Emmys, he's been president of The Magic Castle's board of directions, and published a best-selling autobiography. It'd sure be great if he'd slow down for a second and let the rest of us catch up, but nope! Instead he's kicking off a four-city tour for The Magic Misfits, the first book in a new series he's writing.
The story of the Misfits actually sounds pretty great: Carter is a street magician who runs away to a New England town and gets together with other magicians and has to deal with the nefarious activities of a group of carnies led by B.B. Bosso. (Maybe this is actually another autobiography.) Also, check this out from the book's description on Amazon:
(Psst. Hey, you! Yes, you! Congratulations on reading this far. As a reward, I'll let you in on a little secret... This book isn't just a book. It's a treasure trove of secrets and ciphers and codes and even tricks. Keep your eyes peeled and you'll discover more than just a story--you'll learn how to make your own magic!)
Harris' book tour will take place the first week of December and hit Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, and Woodridge, Illinois. The Magic Misfits will be available starting November 21.
