About the Author

Derren Brown

Derren began his UK television career in December 2000 with a series of specials called Mind Control. Since redefining the genre of magic for intelligent, modern audiences, he has become synonymous with the art of psychological manipulation. His TV shows have become must-see events. Amongst a varied and notorious career, Derren has played Russian Roulette on live television, convinced middle-managers to commit an armed robbery in the street, led the nation in a séance, stuck viewers to their sofas, successfully predicted the National Lottery, motivated a shy man to land a packed passenger plane at 30,000 feet, exposed psychic and faith-healing charlatans, and hypnotised a man to assassinate Stephen Fry. On top of this he tours the UK every year with a sell-out stage show.

He has published four books: Tricks of the Mind, Confessions of a Conjuror, Happy and a book of his caricatures, Portraits.

Praise for Confessions of a Conjuror

“It combines a playfully baroque prose style with pinpoint observation and almost excruciating levels of self-examination, if not loathing. It's a fascinating experience.”

AL Kennedy, Guardian, Books of the Year

“A fantastic voyage into Derren Brown's intensely sharp brain... A deeply funny and eccentric triumph”

Heat

“Closer to the work of someone like Malcolm Gladwell than to the ... reminiscences of Brown's memoirs-writing contemporaries”

Word

“A lovely kind of magic trick in book form”

Boing Boing

“Weird, whimsical and, at times, uproarious... Brown takes us on a meandering pleasure cruise downriver. It is worth the journey.”

The Sunday Times
