A short story (2,000 words) based on an apocryphal account of a true tale. In 1910 Harry Houdini jumped from Prince's Bridge in Melbourne, Australia. What happened was a shock to the thousands gathered on the banks, even Harry himself.

Unusual and different. A very short story. I picked this up because I had read Chris Winterton's novel FOLK, which I thought was amazing (5 stars) and I was looking for something else by the author.

I think I just wanted more from this tale, although it does pack a punch at the ending.

This is a very short story told from different points of view... It was a bit difficult to follow as it was sometimes confusing as to who was telling the story. I think it could have been better.

CHRIS LIKES HATS, WHICH IS GOOD BECAUSE HE WEARS MANY. FOR HIS NOVEL FOLK, HE HAD TO WEAR QUITE A FEW.

He’s made a career out of being a polycreative; writer, designer, art director, musician, producer, creative director and new dad. Chris is one of many in a growing breed who’s as comfortable swapping the fedora for the straw boater as he his swapping the keyboard for the, well, keyboard.
