Mark Helprin

Interview

Saturday, July 23, 2005

Mark Helprin writes books with an adventurous spirit and great historical sweep. Not surprising for a guy who's held jobs as a surveyor, Israeli infantryman, and speechwriter for Bob Dole. Helprin talks to Kurt about his new book Freddy and Fredericka, a comic novel about British Royals who’ve been sent incognito to America to clean up their act.
