"The further in you go the bigger it gets"

Little, Big - John Crowley

''A book that all by itself calls for a redefinition of fantasy.'' --Ursula K. Le Guin 

''Crowley is generous, obsessed, fascinating, gripping. Really, I think Crowley is so good that he has left everybody else in the dust.'' --Peter Straub, award-winning horror fiction author 

Ambitious, dazzling, strangely moving, a marvelous magic-realist family chronicle.'' --Washington Post 

''John Crowley writes sentences of such coruscating magnificence that the rest of the English language has fallen in love with them. I once knew an adverbial clause who was so infatuated with the linguistic beauty of Little, Big that the poor creature pined away into a comma.'' --James Morrow, World Fantasy Award-winning author 

''One of my favorite works of modern fantasy, Little, Big, is an amazing tale told in an amazing way. Reading it I felt as if I were watching a high-wire artist: one slip and he would fall into the dreadful net of Twee. Yet Crowley never slips, not upon a single word, and the book grows more powerful with every page.'' --Katharine Kerr, bestselling author
