Note
This Library of America volume presents Madeleine L'Engle's Newbery Award-winning classic A Wrinkle in Time, one of the most beloved and influential novels for young readers ever written, in a newly-prepared authoritative text and, as a special feature, an appendix including four never-before-seen deleted passages. The book's unforgettable heroine, Meg Murry, must confront her fears and self-doubt to rescue her scientist father, who has been experimenting with mysterious tesseracts capable of bending the fabric of space and time. Helping her are her little brother Charles Wallace, her friend Calvin O'Keefe, and a trio of strange supernatural visitors called Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who, and Mrs Which, in an epic battle between good and evil. But A Wrinkle in Time was only the beginning of the adventure. Seven other novels followed, which L'Engle collectively called the "Kairos Novels," named for the ancient Greek word for cosmically critical moments of time. Now, all eight Kairos Novels are collected in a deluxe two-volume edition for the first time. The first volume gathers A Wrinkle in Time with three books that chronicle the continuing adventures of Meg and her siblings. In A Wind in the Door, Meg and Calvin descend into the microverse to save Charles Wallace from the Echthroi, evil beings who are trying to unname existence. When a mad dictator threatens nuclear war in A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Charles Wallace must save the future by journeying into the past. And in Many Waters, Sandy and Dennys, Meg's twin brothers, are accidentally transported back to the time of Noah's ark. Rounding out the volumes is a selection of hard-to-find essays in which L'Engle reflects on the art of writing books for young people. A companion volume collects the final four Kairos Novels, the Polly O'Keefe quarter, in which Meg and Calvin's daughter takes center stage. - from bookjacket
