Synopsis:

Writing his memoirs from a mountain garden in Brazil, an elderly American recounts his experiences as a World War II ace, an investment banker, a resident in a Switzerland insane asylum, a murderer, and a slave to his coffee addiction. Reprint.


Review:

"Mark Helprin's rapturous and melancholy new novel, which, like 'A Soldier of the Great War', ...is a husky narrative of a singularly adventurous life...Mr. Helprin's work is in the tradition of grand, cerebral, picaresque storytelling, but with a modernist edge of self-parody."

Richard Bernstein, New York Times

Review:

"Helprin's latest epic demonstrates a prose style that is beautifully heart-wrenching, even baroque, but it's also somehow disturbing. To say that he writes like an angel is not hyperbole. He is magical, even otherworldly at times, but finishing the novel leaves one with a dissatisfaction that is troubling. The only way to describe this sensation is to call it a spiritual longing....His writing is both lovely and strangely inhuman."

Geoff Manson, San Francisco Review of Books, May/June, 1995

Book Description: HOUGHTON MIFFLIN, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 202 x 142 mm. Brand New Book. An old American who lives in Brazil is writing his memoirs. An English teacher at the naval academy, he is married to a woman young enough to be his daughter and has a little son whom he loves. He sits in a mountain garden in Niteroi, overlooking the ocean.As he reminisces and writes, placing the pages carefully in his antproof case, we learn that he was a World War II ace who was shot down twice, an investment banker who met with popes and presidents, and a man who was never not in love. He was the thief of the century, a murderer, and a protector of the innocent. And all his life he waged a valiant, losing, one-man battle against the world s most insidious enslaver: coffee.Mark Helprin combines adventure, satire, flights of transcendence, and high comedy in this memoir of a man whose life reads like the song of the twentieth century.
