The Solitudes (Paperback)
|Author: John Crowley|
|Reengaging the ideas of alternate lives, worlds, and worldviews that pulsed through Crowleys remarkable "Little, Big," the Aegypt series is a landmark in contemporary fiction. Following the Spring 2007 release of the final book in the tetralogy--"Endless Things"--the entire series is being re-issued.|

John Crowley wrote from childhood. After graduating from Indiana University in 1964, he went to work assisting a fashion photographer in New York. There he began writing documentary TV shows, and worked as a proofreader for telephone books. After the publication of his first book, "The Deep" (1975), he became a full-time writer. Crowley has also been a visiting professor at Yale University and the recipient of an American Academy of Arts and Letters Award for literature.
