Due to be published in October, Mark Helprin's new novel, In Sunlight and in Shadow. 720 pages. I don't think I can wait until October, that's like, months away. The Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Fall 2012 catalogue uses the dust jacket image as its front cover. So I am guessing this book will receive heavy promotion. Anyone giving out advance reading copies? (Not too proud to beg.)
I have searched the internet in vain and much as I hate to say this, the only place I find an excerpt is on Amazon. So here it is, scroll down to the Editorial Reviews area for the Prologue and beginning of Chapter One. I plan on buying my copy directly from the author himself.
