Staff Reviews

"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

— From The BookPeople 100 (Page 4)


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.
