9780575030657: Little, Big

Little, Big tells the epic story of Smoky Barnable -- an anonymous young man who meets and falls in love with Daily Alice Drinkwater, and goes to live with her in Edgewood, a place not found on any map. In an impossible mansion full of her relatives, who all seem to have ties to another world not far away, Smoky fathers a family and tries to learn what tale he has found himself in -- and how it is to end.

Review:

''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

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

Descripción Victor Gollancz: London, 1982. Hardcover. 1982 World Fantasy award winner. ''A now recognized landmark of modern fantasy, Crowley's novel encompasses many worlds in its ambitious scope and triumphs on all counts'' ''A literate, touching and unassuming masterpiece.'' Barron (ed.): Fantasy Literature, 4A-79. Pringle: Modern Fantasy: The 100 Best Novels #76. An uncommon book, especially with the price on the dustjacket intact: most copies for sale seem to be the unpriced (whisper it softly, but book club or export edition) variant. Page edges a little browned, slight snag to edges of two pages, an almost fine copy in a VG+ (priced £8.95 on inner front flap) dustjacket with creasing (though no tears or chips) to both spine panel edges. With review slip laid in. First hardcover edition (& 1st printing). Nº de ref. de la librería 10158
