About This Book:
Title: Winter's Tale
SynopsisWritten in 1983 but set in the year 2000 in New York City, Helprin's novel tells the story of Peter Lake, master mechanic and burglar, who, in the course of a robbery, falls in love with a wealthy Upper West Side woman and sets out on a quest to stop time in its tracks.
Industry Reviews"A wild, abundant, generous book...part mad invention, and ...worth the trip."
"A dazzling modern fairytale by a storyteller of seemingly effortless and artless grace."
"Helprin tirelessly, artfully strings variation upon variation--the fabulous recapitulating itself in different disguises and in lovely, serene yet vibrant, harmonic sentences....the result is talemaking of avid genius, rarely silly or cheap, frequently stunningly poetic."
