About this title


Retaining as an adult his childhood beliefs in magic and imagination, Pierce Moffett realizes that his search for the hidden history of the world is just beginning. 20,000 first printing. $20,000 ad/promo.

From the Publisher:

"From John Crowley, author of Little, Big, comes a major work of American magic realism set in the same realm of infinite possibility as his critically acclaimed Egypt (a New York Times "notable Book" for 1987). Love & Sleep revolves around Pierce Moffett, who as a boy was no stranger to magic, scratching the surface of ordinary life to find something glittering and strange underneath. For most children, these revelations fade with time, but for the adult Pierce -- struggling to retain the youthful vision and innocence of childhood -- the search for the hidden history of the world is just beginning. An eloquent treatise on the secrets of life, Love & Sleep proves Crowley to be one of American literature's most original and valuable treasures.

"John Crowley is an abundantly gifted writer, a scholar whose passion for history is matched by his ability to write a graceful sentence." -- New York Times Book Review.

"Crowley is generous, obsessed, fascinating, gripping. Really, I think Crowley is so good that he has left everybody else in the dust." -- Peter Straub

"A master of language, plot and characterization, Crowley triumphs in this occult and Herrnetic tale, at once naturalistically persuasive and uncannily visionary. Love & Sleep rewards endless rereading, as does Little, Big." -- Harold Bloom, author of The Book Of J.
