Summary
Buck Howard is a mentalist extraordinaire who used to spend his days in the limelight. But nowadays, it's become clear to everyone but Buck that his act has long ago lost its luster. Yet, Buck is convinced his comeback is imminent. With the help of his new personal assistant, recent law school drop-out and would-be writer Troy, not to mention his fiery publicist, Buck surprisingly lands back in the American consciousness, taking Troy along for the ride of his life
