Join Mark Helprin, author of  #1 New York Times Bestseller "Winter’s Tale," for a conversation on his new novel "Paris in The Present Tense," just out in the U.S. with The Overlook Press.

"Paris in The Present Tense" follows 74-year-old Jules Lacour — a maître at Paris-Sorbonne, cellist, widower, veteran of the great war in Algeria and child of the Holocaust — who must find a balance between his strong obligations to the past and the attractions and beauties of life, love and young people of the present. Set in a present-day Paris caught between violent unrest, its Nazi history and its well-known glories, Helprin’s latest novel vividly depicts the famed city in its tumultuous present and how it can uniquely shape a life in unexpected ways.

"A masterpiece filled with compassion and humanity. Perfect for the pure pleasure of reading." — Kirkus Review
