Author Info
Mark Helprin
Helprin grew up in the Hudson River Valley, the son of immigrants. He has both a B.A. and an M.A. from Harvard, and served in the British Merchant Navy as well as in the Israeli army. "The New Yorker" published his first story when he was 21; his first collection appeared in 1975. His first novel, "Refiner's Fire", was published two years later, and his 1981 collection, "Ellis Island and Other Stories", won the National Jewish Book Award in 1982. He was a speechwriter for Bob Dole in the 1990 presidential election. In his novels and stories, Helprin differs from many of his contemporaries in his unswervingly affirmative worldview.
From the Publisher
Editors Note Mark Helprin's acclaimed novel is now a major motion picture starring Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Jennifer Connelly, William Hurt, Eva Marie Saint, and Russell Crowe. Written and directed by Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), in theatres February 14, 2014. New York City is subsumed in arctic winds, dark nights, and white lights, its life unfolds, for it is an extraordinary hive of the imagination, the greatest house ever built, and nothing exists that can check its vitality. One night in winter, Peter Lake--orphan and master-mechanic, attempts to rob a fortress-like mansion on the Upper West Side.|Though he thinks the house is empty, the daughter of the house is home. Thus begins the love between Peter Lake, a middle-aged Irish burglar, and Beverly Penn, a young girl, who is dying.||Peter Lake, a simple, uneducated man, because of a love that, at first he does not fully understand, is driven to stop time and bring back the dead. His great struggle, in a city ever alight with its own energy and beseiged by unprecedented winters, is one of the most beautiful and extraordinary stories of American literature.|
