Read full description of the books El verano del pequeño San John:

Mil años después de la Tormenta, que ha destruido la sociedad industrial, los sobrevivientes se han dividido en comunidades aisladas, con sus propias y minúsculas culturas. En Belaire Pequeña viven los del Habla con Verdad, que practican una ética de franqueza total, un misticismo alimentado por intoxicantes, y un estilo serpeante de vida y conversación. Vecinos próximos son las gentes más reservadas y puritanas de la Lista de la doctora Botas, aficionadas a los gatos, y descendientes de una organización feminista que llegó a anunciar el fin del mundo.

Junco que Habla, de Belaire Pequeña, pretende ser santo, tener una vida de textura transparente en la que todos los hombres puedan verse a sí mismos. Así va de un lado a otro: examina los artefactos misteriosos e irrepetibles creados por los "ángeles", que ahora viven en las ciudades flotantes del cielo; comparte la vida arbórea de un ermitaño; rechaza los modos y costumbres de la Lista; conoce a los saqueadores, que aún reverencian los restos de la civilización tecnológica. Por último se encuentra con Mongolfier, enviado en paracaídas desde un puesto de ángeles, y registra con él las vicisitudes de su propia hagiografía en cristales de ocho caras. Alcanza así una apoteosis irónica: la aceptación otoñal de una conciencia infeliz en un libro titulado "El Verano del Pequeño San John", y que instruirá a los ángeles -nosotros- sobre las virtudes de la gente de la superficie.

John Crowley was born in Presque Isle, Maine, in 1942; his father was then an officer in the US Army Air Corps. He grew up in Vermont, northeastern Kentucky and (for the longest stretch) Indiana, where he went to high school and college. He moved to New York City after college to make movies, and did find work in documentary films, an occupation he still pursues. He published his first novel (The Deep) in 1975, and his 15th volume of fiction (Endless Things) in 2007. Since 1993 he has taught creative writing at Yale University. In 1992 he received the Award in Literature from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters.
His first published novels were science fiction: The Deep (1975) and Beasts (1976). Engine Summer (1979) was nominated for the 1980 American Book Award; it appears in David Pringle’s 100 Best Science Fiction Novels.
In 1981 came Little, Big, which Ursula Le Guin described as a book that “all by itself calls for a redefinition of fantasy.”
In 1980 Crowley embarked on an ambitious four-volume novel, Ægypt, comprising The Solitudes (originally published as Ægypt), Love & Sleep, Dæmonomania, and Endless Things, published in May 2007. This series and Little, Big were cited when Crowley received the prestigious American Academy of Arts and Letters Award for Literature.
He is also the recipient of an Ingram Merrill Foundation grant. His recent novels are The Translator, recipient of the Premio Flaianno (Italy), and Lord Byron’s Novel: The Evening Land, which contains an entire imaginary novel by the poet. A novella, The Girlhood of Shakespeare's Heroines, appeared in 2002. A museum-quality 25th anniversary edition of Little, Big, featuring the art of Peter Milton and a critical introduction by Harold Bloom, is in preparation.

Note: The John Crowley who wrote Sans épines, la rose: Tony Blair, un modèle pour l'Europe? is a different author with the same name. (website)
