In its purest form, storytelling is a means of enchanting experience. Under a story’s spell, the ineffable emanations of life—the secrets we carry within us but that are never quite revealed to the world in the comings and goings of everyday reality—are summoned into an almost palpable existence. Rare is the novel that taps this clear spring of imagination, but John Crowley’s 1981 fantasy, Little, Big, is one that does. A willing suspension of disbelief and the author’s winsome gifts for words and wonder will soon have you spellbound. Playful and capacious, Little, Big is a fey and fateful fable of what it means for an individual to find a place in the larger world.

This is one of those books that you can read time and again and still get something new from it each time you read it.
