John Crowley's picture

John Crowley


USA (1942 - )

John Crowley was born in the appropriately liminal town of Presque Isle, Maine. He teaches creative writing at Yale University. In 1992 he received the Award in Literature from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. He finds it more gratifying that almost all of his work is still in print.
