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.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too much Trying to describe the plot of this book is like trying to describe a river. It moves sometimes too fast, sometimes too slow, and over things that don't stop it and you don't really know the purpose. The story just keeps going and often doesn't seem to make much sense as it turns back on itself until you find yourself at the end. Or is it the end? It is a story that goes on and on, but in the end I just didn't care anymore.
