sadness

How did I not hear about this earlier? Madeleine L'Engle, one of my favorite authors, passed away last week.

Selfish person that I am, my first thought was to be horrified that The Eye Begins to See, her book about the adult Meg Murry, will now remain incomplete forever.

That aside, I really am quite sad about this. I've read every one of her non-religious books with the exception of Ilsa, which is just too expensive to buy. I always thought that she wrote beautifully and evocatively, and she also somehow managed to incorporate her spirituality into her work without annoying the agnostic/atheist in me. No small feat, that.
