Overview

The acclaimed reality-altering finale to the "dizzying experience, achieved with unerring security of technique" that is the ®gypt cycle (The New York Times Book Review)

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.
