::: Little, Big (Crowley)

Little, Big was an excellent book. Like the house at the center of the story, the inside is much bigger than the outside, and the further in you go the bigger it gets. It's got an old (in the good sense) theme, that of renewal of Faery by humans, but the characters in the huge sprawling family are wonderful. The prose in places is more like poetry, like Carlyle's French Revolution, which you don't read for the history but for the beauty of his language. Bit puzzled as to Holy Roman Empire references, though. All in all, two thumbs up and likely to get a re-read from me in a year or so, to get the bits I missed the first time through.
