John Crowley

John Crowley

John Crowley was born in the appropriately liminal town of Presque Isle, Maine, the son of an Army Air Corps doctor.  He grew up in several states and has worked at several occupations (photographer, publicist, television writer, hack) and began publishing novels in 1975.  He is a recipient of the American Academy and Institute of Letters Award for Literature and the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement Award.  His critically acclaimed works include Little, Big; the Ægypt Cycle of magical history (The Solitudes, Love & Sleep, Dæmonomania, Endless Things); The Translator (winner of the Premio Flaiano, Italy); and Lord Byron’s Novel: The Evening Land.  His most recent novel is Four Freedoms, about building a giant warplane in the 1940s; a new one, about Crows and death, will appear in Fall 2017. He teaches fiction writing and screenwriting at Yale University.  He has twin daughters and lives in northwest Massachusetts.
