Yet another book that I wanted to love and just couldn't. This has been my "nightstand" book for the last generation or so and maybe I would have enjoyed it more if I had read it in longer conferences. I think Helprin is an amazing writer but I just could not get into the story. And I freely admit that I really didn't understand villains of it, in particular the last 50 pages.
