Abstract:

One night, Peter Lake -- orphan, master-mechanic, and master second-story man -- attempts to rob a fortress-like mansion on the Upper West Side. Though he thinks the house is empty, the daughter of the house is home. Thus begins the affair between the middle-aged Irish burglar and Beverly Penn, a young girl who is dying. Because of a love that at first he cannot fully understand, Peter, a simple and uneducated man, will be driven to "stop time and bring back the dead". His great struggle, in a city ever alight with its own energy and beset by winter, is an extraordinary story.
