In "The Magic Barrel," what are some clues that Salzman purposely left the photo of his daughter in the portfolio he gave to Finkle?
First, think of how Salzman stage managed things earlier--how he brought only a few pictures. Would a man that careful make this sort of mistake?
Second, think of how he managed Finkle's expectations in other ways--how he, for example, changed the age of the women.
Third, there is the idea of magic (as in "the magic barrel")--which could be true magic, but which could also be stage magic, manipulation.
