Abstract:

Best-selling, critically acclaimed author Mark Helprin's work has drawn favorable comparisons to an elite group of literary legends, including James Joyce, Franz Kafka, Edgar Allan Poe, and Thomas Mann. Helprin's sheer comic brilliance shines in this ingenious farce. A thinly veiled satire of what might have happened to the British monarchy if Princess Diana had survived, Freddy and Fredericka is an imaginative gem full of clever wordplay and wicked political jabs."[Mark Helprin] frequently astounds with the freshness of voice and the oddly soaring majesty of this ... comic call for greatness in a mediocre era."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review.
