About the Author

John Crowley was born in 1942, grew up in Greenwich Village, Vermont, Kentucky, and northern Indiana, graduated from Indiana University, and after moving to New York worked writing documentary films. He began publishing fiction in 1975, starting with three science fiction novels (The Deep, Beasts, and Engine Summer). His later novels are less categorizable. He won the Award for Literature of the American Academy of Letters in 1992 and the World Fantasy Award three times. His novels include Little, Big; the four-volume Γ†gypt Cycle, and most recently, Four Freedoms. His documentary films include studies of the 1939 World's Fair, the Tiananmen Square incident, and the Pearl Harbor attack. Since 1993 he has taught creative writing at Yale University.
