A year earlier, a librarian from Texas had passed through town and interviewed me over coffee. How, she asked, did I feel about adaptations? I told her they didn’t interest me; I couldn’t imagine spending years on a story I hadn’t even written. Except one: A Wrinkle in Time. L’Engle has been a favorite author of mine since childhood, when I read the Time Quartet again and again, and her influence has left its fingerprints all over my work. I wouldn’t mind spending a few hundred pages with Meg Murry. And how often does one get to draw a tesseract?
