Inside the pocket is an envelope addressed to me that wasn't there earlier, and inside the sealed envelope is a plain white card.

Inscribed upon the card is a secret about myself that I thought no one in the world knew and, even weirder, it is written in my own lipstick. The foyer of the Covent Garden hotel spins round and round. Thirty-year-old Blaine is wildly famous in America, mostly for his magic tricks but increasingly for a series of flamboyant stunts that have earned him the nickname the Hip Houdini.

Today magician and stuntman David Blaine embarks on his latest trick.

He will stand on a 90ft pillar for 35 hours before jumping off into a pile of cardboard boxes. Oliver Burkeman talks him down from a two-inch-wide railing 30 storeys above the streets of New York High above Fifth Avenue, on the rooftop of a stately 30-storey apartment block, up where the air begins to chill and the gusting winds muffle the sound of horns from the street below, there is an old iron fire escape bolted to the side of the building.

There is nothing beneath it except more fire escape and then, far below, the tree-lined sidewalks and the convoys of yellow cabs.

But look, David, we're not really here to talk about how great the sweet potato ravioli at Babbo is, are we? "Yep."So it's time to get back in the box, which will be suspended 25 ft above the Thames and clearly visible to passers by on Tower Bridge for the duration of his six-week hunger strike. It came down from a point somewhere and I was instructed that this was the right thing for me to do."A higher calling? But I think our heads are like antennae."Ice coffins, hurling himself off poles, incarceration inside a glass box, taking a bullet; it all sounds like an elaborate death wish, a macabre dance with mortality."No," says Blaine. That would be, like, a glamorous way to die."Blaine was raised by his mother in Brooklyn.

- a furiously lucrative media phenomenon and a life spent hanging out at parties with Leonardo Di Caprio and the Clintons. But at this point in time it must be conceded that he is balancing on a two-inch-thick strip of metal, high above a very hard New York street, and still managing to hold down his end of a conversation.

"I'm just hoping it's not this windy next week," the 29-year-old is saying in a stoned, barely-conscious monotone that jars with his precarious position.

The couple has been engaged for several years and has been blessed with one daughter, Dessa.
