it was amazing
bookshelves: nonfiction
Read in October, 2008


L'Engle speculates on life and love and the nature of the universe, not to mention writing. Oh, the writing! It's fascinating to hear from a Newbery-winning author, someone whose work I've loved and whom I've looked up to since I was a child, and realize how similar we are in our quirks and fears and insecurities.

But what a hilarious, beautiful, intelligent woman she was! I'm anxious to get the rest of the Crosswicks journals, and I'm severely put out that her non-Time Quartet children's books seem to be mostly out of print! Grr.

Jodi Meeting her was incredible. I had worshiped her work as a child and A Wrinkle in Time is the one book I'd take on a desert island. Every time I read it, I understand something new. She was fascinating.
