Librarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name. See this thread for more information.

John Crowley was born in Presque Isle, Maine, in 1942; his father was then an officer in the US Army Air Corps.

In 1992 he received the Award in Literature from the American Academy and Institute of Arts...more
