Freddy and Fredericka by Mark Helprin
Book DescriptionA"New York Times"bestseller by Mark Helprin, author of"Winter's Tale," which is now a major motion picture starring Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Russell Crowe, William Hurt, and Jennifer Connelly Mark Helprin s legions of devoted readers cherish his timeless novels and short stories, which are uplifting in their conviction of the goodness and resilience of the human spirit. "Freddy and Fredericka" a brilliantly refashioned fairy tale and a magnificently funny farce only seems like a radical departure of form, for behind the laughter, Helprin speaks of leaps of faith and second chances, courage and the primacy of love. Helprin s latest work, an extraordinarily funny allegory about a most peculiar British royal family, is immensely mocking of contemporary monarchy and yet deeply sympathetic to the individuals caught in its lonely absurdities."
