I thought of this book while I was reading the LB discussion here -
specifically the New York stuff. I liked it when I was a youngster, but I
couldn't finish it when I tried it again a couple of years ago - kind of
flatulent and self-indulgent, though some of the set-pieces were nice.
Dhalgren was certainly a better book, IMO.

Helprin is/was a New Yorker regular, I think? I guess that would help for
getting mainstream cred, as against being locked up in a genre box.
