A New ‘Wrinkle in Time’ – WSJ

Here’s an awesome article about a lost passage from “A Wrinkle in Time,” by Madeleine L’Engle. This book was my gateway book to science fiction and fantasy. I read it when I was in 4th grade and I never looked back.

The lost passage sounds fascinating, although from a writer’s perspective, I can understand why it was cut. It’s one of those scenes that feel like the author is telling you what she’s told you. A bit heavy-handed. I cut lots of scenes like that from my books.

“Too hard for kids?” Not at all!
