Never Finished: "Character Studies" by Mark Singer

Never Finished: Character Studies: Encounters with the curiously obsessed by Mark Singer, 2005, 0618197257

Compilation of profiles written by Singer for the New Yorker. I read five of the nine in here. One of those was read in the magazine though, so maybe that doesn't count.

The profile of Ricky Jay was fantastic. Jay is an incredible magician and sleight-of-hand artist, and I don't even like magic acts. The article is on Jay's website.

Good articles, but I've had this book too long and need to return it.
