Sui generis. A masterpiece. Indescribably beautiful. What more can one say?

"Fairy tales are for children." Except in the world of Daily Alice and John Drinkwater, of a house with 5 fronts, a changeling, and relatives who give a nod to Oberon and Titania. The orrery turns in concert with the planets wheeling overhead, and fates smile favour on city refugee and Grandfather Trout alike.
If a life not chained to logic and likelihood has any appeal, you ought to wander in Crowley's wonderland. Without breathtaking feats of sleight-of-hand, Little, Big touches your longing for a world where magic is your Sancho Panza.

This is truly a magical book. When I first began reading it. I did not like or understand it and became bored. However, because it was a recommendation of one of my favorite authors, Jacqueline Carey, I felt I really needed to read on. If a book does not get my attention by the 3rd or 4th chapter, my usual pattern is to stop reading it and move on to something better - this time I went on reading. So very glad I did - Smokey Barnable and friends will take you, the reader on a very magical and mysterious-and personal- journey. The story weaves in and out of worlds upon worlds and times upon times always taking the reader on a mysterious and complex adventure. Highly recommended to all of you fantasy lovers out there that like to mix magic with reality-and decide for yourself which is which.

"Review" by , "Ambitious, dazzling, strangely moving."
"Review" by , "The kind of book around which cults are formed, and rightly so. There's magic here."
"Review" by , "A gorgeously written picararesque family saga...[A]rguably Crowley's masterpiece. When 'you'll love this' isn't enough, I have proceeded to claim (as I'm claiming here) that Little, Big is an important American novel that bears comparison to such works as One Hundred Years of Solitude and Nabokov's Ada."
"Review" by , "Little, Big seems to me as miraculous as Shakespeare or Lewis Carroll: it is as if the book had always been there...as though John Crowley found it, and brought it home with him and to us."
