Winner of the National Jewish Book Award and nominee for both the PEN/Faulkner Award and the American Book Award, these ten stories and the celebrated title novella are “beyond compare . . . [Helprin’s] imagination should be protected by some intellectual equivalent of the National Park Service” (The Philadelphia Inquirer).

From the Back Cover:

These ten stories and the title novella, Ellis Island, exhibit a tremendous range and versatility of style and technique and yet are closely unified in their beauty and in their concern with enduring and universal questions.
