Overview
A Wrinkle in Time was only the beginning: rediscover an American classic and its three sequels in this deluxe Library of America edition.

This Library of America volume presents Madeleine L'Engle's iconic classic A Wrinkle in Time, one of the most beloved and influential novels for young readers ever written, in a newly-prepared authoritative text and, as a special feature, it includes never-before-seen deleted passages from the novel in an appendix. L'Engle's unforgettable heroine, Meg Murry, must confront her fears and self-doubt to rescue her scientist father, who has been experimenting with mysterious tesseracts capable of bending the very fabric of space and time. Helping her are her little brother Charles Wallace and her friend Calvin O'Keefe, and a trio of strange supernatural visitors called Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who, and Mrs Which. But A Wrinkle in Time was only the beginning of the adventure. Seven other Kairos ("cosmic time") novels followed, collected for the first time in a deluxe two volume collector's boxed set.

This first volume gathers Wrinkle with three books that chronicle the continuing adventures of Meg and her siblings. In A Wind in the Door, Meg and Calvin descend into the microverse to save Charles Wallace from the Echthroi, evil beings who are trying to unname existence. When a madman threatens nuclear war in A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Charles Wallace must save the future by traveling into the past. And in Many Waters, Sandy and Dennys, Meg's twin brothers, are accidentally transported back to the time of Noah's ark.

A companion volume gathers the final four Kairos Novels, the Polly O'Keefe quartet, in which Calvin and Meg's daughter takes center stage.
