Books to Read Before You See the Movie
Yep, we all saw the cable version
in the Attic
last week. But don't miss

as they make their way to the bigger film screen.

The epic love story
of an Irish burglar who falls for a dying girl—all set in winterized,
fantastical New York City—made this mammoth book a hit with young and
adult readers. Read it for the icy, mythical world your imagination will create
as you travel the streets of this city. Then and only then, watch the film this
February and enjoy the cinematic version of Helprin's Manhattan, including
white horses, ballrooms and frost-covered bridges. Note: Hankie mandatory.
