(Library of America, two volumes, 2018)
A Wrinkle in Time was only the beginning. Here, for the first time, in a newly-prepared authoritative text, Madeleine L’Engle’s iconic classic is presented with all seven of its sequels—what L’Engle called the Kairos (or “cosmic time”) novels—in a deluxe two-volume boxed set, complete with never-before-seen deleted passages from A Wrinkle in Time. Also included: the unabridged, fully annotated texts of A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, The Arm of the Starfish, Dragons on the Waters, A House Like a Lotus, and An Acceptable Time.

“The new appendices added to these volumes are fascinating, and Leonard S. Marcus has outdone himself in the notes, chronologies and added details to expand upon the texts.”–The Green Man Review
“A landmark collector’s edition of A Wrinkle in Time – in a corrected text with never-before-seen deleted passages – together for the first time with all seven of its sequels.”–BookTrib https://kirkcenter.org/reviews/moral-reasoning-in-an-acceptable-time/
