I have read all of the books of A Kingdom Far And Clear by Mark Helprin many times.I have read them,most selfishly,for myself.I have also read them to children and friends and relatives,one at a time. Now I can read them the entire story at once.
It's delicious.Yummy.Magic.Dazzling.The illustrations are wonderful,enchanting,alive and breathing.And they reflect the yarn perfectly.The illustrations and the story enhance each other.It's almost genetic.Now that these stories are available in one
book I have purchased it as a wedding present for the daughter of my best friend.I could not think of a better gift for two.
My favorite books of all time are Winter's Tale,Refiner's Fire,A Dove Of The East, Ellis Island And Other Stories and A Kingdom Far And Clear all imagined by Mark Helprin. I hope he never dies.
