John Crowley was born in the appropriately liminal town of Presque Isle, Maine. He teaches creative writing at Yale University.

John Crowley recommends
thumb
Trash Sex Magic (2004)
Jennifer Stevenson
"A winning, touching, open-eyed love letter. Unusual and wonderfully done."

Finding Baba Yaga (2018)
Jane Yolen
"This novel-in-verse is a journey, an escape, and an encounter with an ambiguous evil. Tart and touching and sometimes deeply sad, with surprising stings of wit."
