Edgewood is many houses, all put inside each other, or across each other. It¿s filled with and surrounded by mystery and enchantment: the further in you go, the bigger it gets.
Smoky Barnable, who has fallen in love with Daily Alice Drinkwater, comes to Edgewood, her family home, where he finds himself drawn into a world of magical strangeness.
Crowley¿s work has a special alchemy - mixing the world we know with an imagined world which seems more true and real. Winner of the World Fantasy Award, Little, Big is eloquent, sensual, funny and unforgettable, a truly Fantasy Masterwork.

COLD TONNAGE BOOKS
(Colyton, DEVON, United Kingdom)

Book Description Victor Gollancz: London, 1982. Hardcover. Fantasy novel. 1982 World Fantasy award winner. In Pringle: Modern Fantasy: The 100 Best Novels no 76. Laid in is a one-page typed letter (signed at the bottom), dated 25th February 1982) from Russell Hoban to Crowley's then Gollancz editor Malcolm Edwards, extolling the virtues of the book, beginning - ''I've now read all of LITTLE, BIG. The first thing I have to report is that this is the first time in may years that I've felt, after reading a few pages, not just that I like a book but that the book liked me. This book is a world-embracer: it is tuned with great sensitivities to the frequences of joy and it offers to the reader strange and haunting music that too often goes unheard.'' And so on (all about the book) for another 250 words. Variant unpriced (unclipped) dustjacket. Fine copy in a fine unpriced (but not clipped) dustjacket (as new) with review slip laid in. First hardcover edition (& 1st printing). Seller Inventory # 00488
