I find 'Little, Big' to be deeply moving. I don't guess I can answer.

Maybe it's like jazz. Louis Armstrong was asked to explain jazz. He
said 'If you have to ask, you'll never know'.

I'd hate to think that is the case. 

'Little, Big' and two other Crowley books 'The Deep' and 'Engine Summer'
are right up there in my favorite books along with TBotNS and Dhalgren
and Bernal Diaz. The last time I compiled a top ten list, Crowley was
the only writer who made it twice.

But there's no accounting for tastes. Maybe you are just not meant to
get it. I sure hope not.
