The Prestige is a 1995 novel by British writer Christopher Priest. The novel is epistolary in structure; that is, it purports to be a collection of real diaries that were kept by the protagonists and later collated. The title derives from the novel's fictional practice of stage illusions having three parts: the setup, the performance, and the prestige (effect).<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }} – Christopher Priest states he created the terms in 1995.</ref>
