Product Description

This is the fourth novel the much anticipated conclusion in John Crowley s astonishing and lauded gypt cycle: 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 gypt 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.

Praise for Endless Things
A work of great erudition and deep humanity that is as beautifully composed as any novel in my experience. The Washington Post Book World

With Endless Things and the completion of the gypt cycle, Crowley has constructed one of the finest, most welcoming tales contemporary fiction has to offer us. Bookforum

An impressive and moving, conclusion. Booklist

John Crowley was born in Presque Isle, Maine. He is the author of numerous novels, including Little, Big and Lord Byron s Novel: The Evening Land. The first two volumes of the gypt cycle The Solitudes and Love & Sleep were enshrined in Harold Bloom s Western Canon.
