Bookmarked Ricky Jay’s Magical Secrets by Mark SingerMark Singer (The New Yorker)
From 1993: The magician’s deft illusions flout reality, and he rejects the notion that magic is a suitable entertainment for children.
I think I’ve read this three or four times, but definitely a classic. The first time was around 2000 when I was at CAA just before I spoke to Ricky for the first time. My last reading  was right after Ricky passed.
