The Word: Legerdemain, Courtesy of Frederick Exley
What's the word? This time around, it's "legerdemain" from Frederick Exley's A Fan's Notes, one of Shay's all-time favorites. Brock Clarke, who wrote An Arsonist's Guide to New England, has a new book out called Exley in which the real dead author plays an imagined role within the fiction. Got that?
