Comments

Presentable copy of L'Engle's beloved children's classic, winner of the 1962 Newberry Medal, and basis for the upcoming Ava DuVernay film starring Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, and Oprah Winfrey. This edition contains a special introduction by L'Engle, in which she relays the constant rejection of her manuscript for the book and the many challenges it took to get it published. She concludes that "The problem wasn't that it was too difficult for children. It was too difficult for adults."
