About the Author
Madeleine L'Engle (1918–2007) was born in New York City and attended Smith College. She wrote more than 60 books, the most famous of which is A Wrinkle In Time (1962), winner of the Newbery Award in 1963. L'Engle continued the story of the Murry family from A Wrinkle In Time with seven other novels (five of which are available as A Wrinkle In Time Quintent from Square Fish). She also wrote the famous series featuring the Austin family, beginning with the novel Meet The Austins (1960). L'Engle revisited the Austins four more times over the next three decades, concluding with Troubling a Star in 1994. The story of the Austins had some autobiographical elements, mirroring Madeleine's life and the life of her family. Madeleine L'Engle's last book, The Joys of Love, is a romantic, coming-of-age story she wrote back in the 1940s, and is being published by FSG.

I highly recommend WRINKLE to exploring spirits of any age, as well as to those who value, as an earlier generation would have said, a ripping good yarn. Let me mention that Madeleine L'Engle lived from 1918 to 2007, was born in New York City, attended Smith, but spent most of her life in rural Connecticut. She is the author of over 20 books, about half of them novels that belong to two series: this one (Murry-O'Keefe or Kairos), and the less "fantastical" Chronos series involving the Austin family. Many people find that after their first exposure to Meg and the other Murrys in WRINKLE, they want to go on to read the other seven books in Kairos as well. Let's all join hands and "tesser" our way into this captivating and intelligent fantasy!
