From award-winning author John Crowley comes an exquisite
fantasy novel about a man who tells the story of a crow
named Dar Oakley and his impossible lives and deaths in the
land of Ka.
A Crow alone is no Crow.
Dar Oakley—the first Crow in all of history with a name of
his own—was born two thousand years ago. When a man learns
his language, Dar finally gets the chance to tell his story.
He begins his tale as a young man, and how he went down to
the human underworld and got hold of the immortality meant
for humans, long before Julius Caesar came into the Celtic
lands; how he sailed West to America with the Irish monks
searching for the Paradise of the Saints; and how he
continuously went down into the land of the dead and
returned. Through his adventures in Ka, the realm of Crows,
and around the world, he found secrets that could change the
humans’ entire way of life—and now may be the time to
finally reveal them.
