Madeline is Dead

No, not that one.

A straight line is not the shortest distance between two points.

So says Mrs. Whatsit in one of my favorite novels, A Wrinkle in Time.

I didn't know that Madeline L'engel was still alive, let alone 88 years old and living in Manhattan, and was sad to read that she died yesterday.

If you haven't read the award-winning book, do yourself a favor and have a go.

RIP, Ms. L'engel. I'm still hoping to find a tesseract.
