Cambodia’s mystic class of sorcerers, mediums, fortunetellers, and monks channel spirits, read fortunes in numbers and cards, and inscribe enchantments in flesh. But technology and modernity are changing these roles and rituals.Vanishing Act tracks down these singular people to document their lives. It paints vivid portraits of men and women who live with one foot in the mundane and another in the magical.From Song Sokheng, who channels two childlike spirits, to a sorcerer who relies on numerology (and a healthy respect for authority) to care for nine wives and their children, Vanishing Act contains eye-opening accounts of traditions that face an uncertain future.

Note: The Kindle Edition of Vanishing Act does not contain the videos and photo galleries of the enhanced edition.
