Mark Helprin (born June 28, 1947) is an American novelist, journalist, and conservative commentator. Helprin was raised on the Hudson River and in the British West Indies, and holds degrees from Harvard College and Harvard's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. His postgraduate work was done at Princeton University and the University of Oxford. He served in the British Merchant Navy, the Israeli infantry, and the Israeli Air Force. His first novel, published in 1977, was Refiner's Fire: The Life and Adventures of Marshall Pearl, a Foundling.

Memoir from Antproof Case, published in 1995, includes long comic diatribes against the effects of coffee. Helprin came out with Freddy and Fredericka, a satire, in 2005.
