Staff Reviews


A wonderful modern fairy tale, with love, loss, and magic: not the flashy kind, but the magic of the heart and soul. Real magic! This novel is the masterpiece you have never heard of, and my favorite book by an American writer.

Description


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.
