Blaine Bashing: My Final Time, Maybe.

"In what has to be one of the most unusual auctions for a book, publishers summoned to meet Blaine by his lawyer/agent, David Vigliano, are instructed to finish or put away any food they’re eating before the magician arrives: he cannot yet eat solids. Perhaps a good job: given the amount of money reputedly being demanded for the book, one or two bidders would have been choking on their sandwiches."

yes, but naturally, no one wants to pay huge chunks of money for blaine's childish handwriting that has made lists about what he missed.
