Publisher Description

A #1 New York Times Bestseller: Mark Helprin’s masterpiece transports you to New York of the Belle Époque, to a city clarified by a siege of unprecedented snows, and to a love story that is one of the most beautiful and unforgettable in American literature.

One winter night, Peter Lake—master mechanic and second-story man—attempts to rob a fortresslike mansion on the Upper West Side. Though he thinks it is empty, the daughter of the house is home. Thus begins the affair between a middle-aged Irish burglar and Beverly Penn, a young girl dying of consumption. It is a love so powerful that Peter, a simple and uneducated man, will be driven to stop time and bring back the dead.

"Utterly extraordinary . . . A piercing sense of the beautiful arising from narrative and emotional fantasy is everywhere alive in the novel . . . Not for some time have I read a work as funny, thoughtful, passionate or large-souled."— New York Times Book Review
