About The Book
Praise for the Aegypt sequence:
“A dizzying experience, achieved with unerring security of technique.”-The New York Times Book Review
“A master of language, plot, and characterization.”-Harold Bloom
“The further in you go, the bigger it gets.”-James Hynes
“The writing here is intricate and thoughtful, allusive and ironic… Aegypt bears many resemblances, incidental and substantive, to Thomas Pynchon’s wonderful 1966 novel The Crying of Lot 49.”-USA Today
“An original moralist of the same giddy heights occupied by Thomas Mann and Robertson Davies.”-San Francisco Chronicle
This is the fourth novel-and much-anticipated conclusion-of John Crowley’s astonishing and lauded Aegypt sequence: a dense, lyrical meditation on history, alchemy, and memory. Spanning three centuries, and weaving together the stories of Renaissance magician John Dee, philosopher Giordano Bruno, and present-day itinerant historian and writer Pierce Moffitt, the Aegypt sequence is as richly significant as Lawrence Durrell’s Alexandria Quartet or Anthony Powell’s Dance to the Music of Time. Crowley, a master prose stylist, explores transformations physical, magical, alchemical, and personal in this epic, distinctly American novel where the past, present, and future reflect each other.
John Crowley was born in the appropriately liminal town of Presque Isle, Maine. His most recent novel is Lord Byron’s Novel: The Evening Land. He teaches creative writing at Yale University. In 1992 he received the Award in Literature from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. He finds it more gratifying that almost all of his work is still in print.
