Writer and political commentator Mark Helprin talks to us about his new book “In Sunlight and In Shadow," a tale set in the post-World War II New York City.

The book chronicles the love story between Catherine, the actress, and Harry, a war vet. The city itself is such a huge part of the book it stands in as another character.
