Book Overview: Little, Big

John Crowley's masterful Little, Big is the epic story of Smoky Barnable, an anonymous young man who travels by foot from the City to a place called Edgewood--not found on any map--to marry Daily Alice Drinkawater, as was prophesied. It is the story of four generations of a singular family, living in a house that is many houses on the magical border of an otherworld. It is a story of fantastic love and heartrending loss; of impossible things and unshakable destinies; and of the great Tale that envelops us all. It is a wonder.

John Crowley is a celebrated American author renowned for his unique ability to infuse literary style into his speculative-fiction works. Born on December 1, 1942, in Presque Isle, Maine, Crowley displayed a love for literature at a very early age, a passion that propelled him through a successful journey in the literary world. He gained recognition for his expertise in the realms of fantasy and science fiction, earning him revered status among bibliophiles worldwide. Crowley's writing career began in earnest with the publication of "The Deep" in 1975. This marked the start of an illustrious career that has culminated in an impressive collection of novels, short stories, and screenplays including the four-volume Ægypt series, which stands out as his most celebrated work. Crowley's uniqueness lies in his exploration of philosophy and history, a quality that has led to his works being considered 'fantasy of ideas.' John Crowley's success as a celebrated author also includes several awards and honors. He received the distinguished World Fantasy Award for his novel "Little, Big", and the four-part Ægypt series gained him the belated recognition of critic Harold Bloom. Despite his advanced age, Crowley continues to contribute to the literary world, with his latest work, "Ka: Dar Oakley in the Ruin of Ymr", published in 2017.
