Description
Julia Severn is a student at an elite institute for psychics. Her mentor, the legendary Madame Ackermann, afflicted by jealousy, subjects Julia to the humiliation of reliving her mother's suicide when Julia was an infant. As the two lock horns, and Julia gains power, Madame Ackermann launches a desperate psychic attack that leaves Julia the victim of a crippling ailment. But others have noted Julia's emerging gifts, and soon she's recruited to track down an elusive missing person who might have a connection to her mother. As Julia sifts through ghosts and astral clues, everything she thought she knew of her mother is called into question, and she discovers that her ability to know the minds of others goes far deeper than she ever imagined.

        December 12, 2011
        A young student surpasses her troubled mentor, unleashing much wrath, in Julavits���s wry, witty new novel (after The Uses of Enchantment). Julia Severn is a mediocre student at New Hampshire���s Institute of Integrated Parapsychology, which is no Hogwarts. Frauds mix with the rare mystic, and students attempt���mostly in vain���to telepathically petrify hunks of pork. Enigmatic psychic diva Madame Ackermann handpicks Julia to be her stenographer, spreading jealousy until Madame feels threatened by Julia and morphs from harmless dingbat into sinister sociopath, ousting the student and debilitating her abilities. Relocated to New York, Julia finds work that is so odd it���s often mistaken for performance art. As she begins to recover her abilities, she meets the mysterious Alwyn and finds her fortune deeply intertwined with a missing feminist French filmmaker who may hold insight about her dead mother. Julia comes to discover much about herself, the world, and her formidable former mentor. Packed with a revolving cast of faces, the story frequently switches into the past, especially at the outset, which can create confusion. But the overall effect is magical, and Julavits���s often acerbic prose generates laughs despite the sad reality of Julia���s life. Agent: Henry Dunow, Dunow, Carlson & Lerner.

        Julia Severn is an initiate at a psychic institute in New Hampshire who comes under the tutelage of a medium named Madame Ackermann. But Julia���who is searching for answers about her deceased mother���is forced to leave the institute following a dispute with Ackermann in which Julia suffered a crippling psychic attack. Eventually, Julia finds her way to a facility in Vienna that deals with psychic wounds. Along the way, she further develops her psychic powers while meeting individuals connected to either Ackermann or her deceased mother. Xe Sands turns in a stellar performance in this audio edition of Julavits���s latest, providing narration that is secretive and seductive. For the novel���s many female characters, Sands offers up a host of spot-on voices and accents. The result is intriguing, whimsical, often funny, and thoroughly enjoyable. A Doubleday hardcover.
