fairy tale, fairy tale: Beauty

Dreaming of Little Big

Last night I dreamt that I was looking for one of my numerous copies of John Crowley's novel Little, Big. Our library organization had become rather baroque, and I was having trouble finding it. I particularly wanted to find something about the character Daily Alice.

Shannon said, "Look under 'fairies'."

I said, "Daily Alice isn't a fairy."

He promptly replied, "Look under 'fairies' mothers'."

I frowned and said, "But Daily Alice's children were The Fates."

And then I woke up.

By the way, if you haven't read Little, Big, you should. (Even if Shannon didn't particularly like it. He's obviously insane.)
