Little, Big

by John Crowley

Part of the Fantasy Masterworks Series

Little, Big Synopsis

Edgewood is many houses, all put inside each other, or across each other. It's filled with and surrounded by mystery and enchantment: the further in you go, the bigger it gets. Smoky Barnable, who has fallen in love with Daily Alice Drinkwater, comes to Edgewood, her family home, where he finds himself drawn into a world of magical strangeness. Crowley's work has a special alchemy - mixing the world we know with an imagined world which seems more true and real. Winner of the WORLD FANTASY AWARD, LITTLE, BIG is eloquent, sensual, funny and unforgettable, a true Fantasy Masterwork. Winner of the WORLD FANTASY AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL, 1982.

Little, Big Press Reviews

There are some people - and I'm one of them - for whom life consists only of passing the time between novels by John Crowley A book that all by itself calls for a redefinition of fantasy I think Crowley is so good that he has left everybody else in the dust Ambitious, dazzling, strangely moving, a marvellous magic-realist family chronicle - WASHINGTON POST
