Looking Closer’s Christmas Gift Recommendations: A Kingdom Far and Clear

Looking for a great fantasy book to give for Christmas?

Here’s an idea: Mark Helprin’s glorious “Swan Lake” trilogy is being republished in one volume – A Kingdom Far and Clear - with beautiful illustrations by Chris Van Allsburg.

I loved these books in their separate volumes, reading them while I wrote the early drafts of Auralia’s Colors.

To have them together in one volume is fantastic.
