Who is Harry Houdini? The most precious of myths. An escapologist, a genius of self-promotion. But above all? A tenacious and dazzling man who, at the beginning of the twentieth century, achieved the most perfect of illusions: transforming himself into a legend.

The project — a narrative biography of the famous escapologist — takes this transformation as its base, tracing the path between Ehrich Weiss and Houdini over three thematic tomes: [1] the birth of Ehrich Weiss; [2] the construction of Harry Houdini; and [3] the creation of a legend.
