Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Twenty stories deal with the courage of a dying priest, an Israeli scout, a young factory worker, a sorrowful orphan, an overwhelmed soldier, and a Sicilian widow. Reissue.

Review:
"In this first collection of short stories, the 28-year-old author Mark Helprin writes with ease and sureness..., with a compassionate understanding and a clean, lucid prose....The quality that pervades these stories is love--love of men and women, love of landscapes and physical beauty, love of interior courage as well as the more easily obtainable outward strength. The author never treats his subjects with sentimentality but always with a gentleness of a kind that is all too rare in our fiction and our lives."

Dan Wakefield, New York Times Book Review, 11/2/75

Book Description: HARVEST BOOKS, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 204 x 136 mm. Brand New Book. The twenty stories here, many of which first appeared in The New Yorker and have since been anthologized throughout the world, are strikingly beautiful essays on enduring and universal questions: In Rome, in the hour of his death, and American priest must choose between his Church and his God. An Israeli scout risks the safety and respect of his comrades in an act of transfiguring gentleness and charity. In a hot, dirty typewriter ribbon factory in the Bronx, a young man finds love. A Dutch child in a Canadian orphanage carries in her heart, her love for her parents and the pain of war. A soldier is overpowered by his days of burying the dead. A Sicilian widow meditates on the end of her family line. These twenty stories are strikingly beautiful pieces on enduring, universal questions by a writer the San Francisco Review of Books calls a master crafter of the short story.
