Winter's Tale

Winter's Tale - Mark Helprin One of those rare books I read over and over. Helprin is a master of magical realism. Haunting, transporting, a magical machine. Splendid prose, a flying horse, the Short Tails roaming the rafters of Grand Central Station, a tubercular heiress on a rooftop, and Peter Lake -- master mechanic and second-story man of New York's Belle Epoque. What's not to love?
