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.
"Little, Big" is simply astounding. Crowley Somehow (intentional capitalization) interweaves Shakespeare, nursery rhymes, the Brothers Grimm, the English Romantic poets, medieval folklore, and much more, into a multi-layered love story that emerges finally into a time and place wholly unexpected. This is true fantasy literature that will be read, studied, and loved long into the real future.
Book just as confusing as the name. 2000 pages of abstract writing. Waste of my time and I only read 300 pages.
