Synopsis:
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.

Review:
A mythical epic of a ³golden age,² Mark Helprin's WINTER'S TALE is a poetic masterpiece about the beauty and complexity of the human soul, justice, love, and the magic of nature. Spanning the last century, Helprin's novel regained acclaim last year when the NEW YORK TIMES identified it as one of the single best works of American fiction published in the last 25 years. The allegory transports the listener into Helprin's love affair with New York City and lyrical prose. Narrator Oliver Wyman's art transcends this brilliant work with his unflagging spirit, awe, wonder, and range of literally dozens of distinctive voices. His remarkable versatility celebrates vocal depth--in characters who range from Dickensian presences to the airy breathiness of gentle souls. He is the harmonious complement to Helprin's kaleidoscopic imagination, and acknowledges the book's grace and wit with every utterance. A.W.
