"For 10 years running, Little, Big by John Crowley has been my favorite book of all time. The story of a family and its tight knit circle of friends and their strange little religion, it is the only book that once I finished it, I immediately re-read. Yes, it is a fantasy novel, but more than that it's literature with a capital L. You will love this book, I promise." - Joe
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 Edgewoodnot found on any mapto 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.
