EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Dec 29, 2004; Writer: Terry Iacuzzo; Genre: Nonfiction; Publisher: Putnam

Born on Halloween Day, 1948, into a Sicilian-American family in Buffalo, Terry Iacuzzo never thought twice about her mother's ability to tell who was having an affair, her father's skill at picking horse-race winners, her sister's Ouija board proficiency, or her brother's fortune-telling. The Iacuzzos were psychic, and that's just the way it was. And like any family, they just couldn't get along, so Iacuzzo left home to live in 1960s NYC, where she dropped acid and explored both sides of her sexuality while dabbling in astrology, tarot cards, and myriad other prophetic devices. While some suspension of disbelief is required for Small Mediums at Large (possessed trumpets?), Iacuzzo's unique coming-of-age tale should appeal to paranormal devotees and skeptics alike.
