  • The Terrifying Beauty of the Fabulist

    Mark Helprin's The Pacific and Other Stories
      As a fiction writer, Mark Helprin never seems hampered by that snarky, internal schoolmarm who whispers doubtfully into the ear as writers write, "That could never happen!" or "People don't talk like that!" On the contrary (thankfully), Helprin has soundly killed that voice, and thus unencumbered by a need to mimic the dreary realism of everyday life, Helprin unrolls his fables.
