Overview


The most enduring tales of fantasy are appreciated by readers of all ages, generation after generation. This trilogy of novellas by critically acclaimed author Mark Helprin will stand that test by time. The heroes of his imagined kingdom pit the power of their love and devotion against dark forces of greed and suppression. His themes resonate for readers of contemporary fantasy as well as those who cherish classic legends and tales. This Calla Edition presents Helprin's novellas — Swan Lake, A City in Winter, and The Veil of Snows — in a single volume, as he had always intended. Award-winning illustrator Chris Van Allsburg's 42 full-color plates complement Helprin's prose with sensitively wrought, finely nuanced images — sometimes grand, sometimes fanciful, always evocative. This signed, numbered edition, limited to 300 copies, includes a deluxe slipcase.

Meet the Author

Mark Helprin
Mark Helprin
A conservative commentator who has served in the Israeli army may not seem the likeliest source of whimsy, but Mark Helprin's tales are written from the soul of a poet. Soldiers and burglars figure prominently in his work, but the stories are not tales of intrigue; they focus more on love, morality and far-flung travels.

    I am also an adult who bought this book for myself. The interior

    I am also an adult who bought this book for myself. The interior illustrations are beautiful, and the story is compelling. However, based on the image on this web page I was expecting a beautiful dust jacket. There was no dust jacket on the copy I received. I paid for most of it with a gift card, so I don't feel too ripped off, but i prevented me from giving a 5 star rating.

    Great Boook

    I am an adult who bought this book for myself. I really liked the story, and the illustrations were very nice. The ending is rather sad though. Very nice quality book with heavy pages and nice color on the illustrations.
