On a far happier note, an interview with Madeleine L’Engle. I had to share this one:
Q: Have you read the Harry Potter books?
A: I read one of them. It’s a nice story but there’s nothing underneath it. I don’t want to be bothered with stuff where there’s nothing underneath.
Oh! I need to set up the VCR today. The movie version of A Wrinkle in Time is being broadcast tonight. L’Engle doesn’t think much of the movie, and I certainly don’t expect it to live up to the book, but I’d like to see it.
