AEGYPT. John Crowley.

AEGYPT. Toronto, New York, London, Sydney, Auckland: Bantam Books, [1987]. Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. "AEGYPT and LOVE AND SLEEP (1994) are the first two volumes in a projected four-part work whose subject is no less than the meaning of life, the nature of reality, and the secret history of the world. Allusive, poetic, and full of magic, visions, and childhood fantasies, these books are sometimes challenging but ultimately rewarding for Crowley's impressive treatment of rather abstract themes via the perspective of several well-drawn characters, stirring imagery, and a masterly use of language. Thematically similar is Crowley's LITTLE, BIG (1981)." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 7-83. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 4A-77. Pringle, Modern Fantasy: The Hundred Best Novels 100. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#161588).

Price: $100.00
