Novelist Mark Helprin on ‘In Sunlight and Shadow,’ his novel of postwar New York

helprinMark Helprin has been publishing breathtaking books since his breakout novel, the fantasy “Winter’s Tale,” was published in 1983. “Winter’s Tale” is set in a magical New York where horses fly, burglars fall in love with wealthy young women and true love conquers some very serious obstacles. In his new book, “In Sunlight and Shadow,” he returns to that terrain.  “Sunlight and Shadow” is a new story of two mismatched lovers, and it’s set in 1947, a glorious era of wealth, ambition and corruption, which Helprin brings to life through his lyrical prose.

Helprin discusses his book and the writing life tonight on “Well Read,” the books and authors program on state public affairs network TVW. It airs at 7 and 10 p.m. tonight (Comcast channel 23 in Seattle).

Or, you can watch it here.
