Description
The winner of the Prix de Rome and the National Jewish Book Award, the author of Ellis Island and Other Stories, Memoir from Antproof Case, and A City in Winter penned this brilliant 1983 novel about an unusual man in an alternate New York City on the cusp of the 20th century. Peter Lake, fished out of the Hudson River as an infant, became a master mechanic before being dragooned into a burglary ring. His life is changed when he breaks into a mansion on the Upper West Side and falls in love with Beverly Penn, a girl dying from tuberculosis. Even more surprising, a runaway white horse seems destined to be Peter's guardian angel.
