“As of this writing, I am sixty-one years old in chronology,” the novelist Madeleine L’Engle once mused. “But I am not an isolated, chronological numerical statistic. I am sixty-one, and I am also four, and twelve, and fifteen, and twenty-three, and thirty-one, and forty-five, and… and… and…”

It’s not entirely surprising that the author of the beloved YA fantasy A Wrinkle in Time would have had such imaginative notions of how past and present fold into each other: “If we lose any part of ourselves,” she concluded, “we are thereby diminished. If I cannot be thirteen and sixty-one simultaneously, part of me has been taken away.”

Planning to pre-order, but in the meantime I will take advantage of this free preview!
