John Crowley

From Academic Kids

John Crowley (born December 1, 1942 in Presque Isle, Maine) is an American author of science fiction, fantasy, and mainstream fiction. He studied at Indiana University and has a second career as a documentary film writer. He is best known as the author of the fantasy book Little, Big (1981), which won the World Fantasy Award.

Crowley's correspondence with literary critic Harold Bloom, and their mutual appreciation, led in 1993 to Crowley taking up a post at Yale University, where he began teaching courses in Utopian fiction, fiction writing, and screenplay writing. Bloom claimed on Contentville.com that Little, Big ranks among the five best novels by a living writer.
