Magic is a short story by Carlo Gébler about a persistent drug trafficker serving time for his offences. Gébler was born in Dublin in 1954 and has taught at Trinity College Dublin, Queen’s University Belfast and HMP Maghaberry, where he has been writer in residence since 1997. He is "drawn to conflict as a writer, and you’ll find there is no greater crucible of conflict than a prison.”

Commissioned by David Killen for Prospect magazine.
