Disney’s space odyssey leads to Oprah and beyond

By Michael Phillips
Chicago Tribune
“You’re given the form,”
one of the celestial men-
tors says in Madeleine
L’Engle’s “A Wrinkle in
Time.” “But you have to
write the sonnet yourself.”
This is how L’Engle de-
scribed a free-will sort of
life, in the novel she be-
gan in 1959. She endured
26 publishing rejections,
got it into print in 1962
and saw it zoom around
the world in 35 different
languages. In its long shelf
life, “A Wrinkle in Time”
has taught millions of chil-
dren and adults about the
evils of conformity, the an-
guish of losing a parent
(temporarily, in this case)
and the gratifying return
to the comforts of home.
