New Madeleine L'Engle Covers
Farrar Straus and Giroux brings another great new cover for a Madeleine L'Engle book.
This time, it's And Both Were Young.
It's about Flip (aka Phillipa) who is sent to a Swiss boarding school. The way, you know, girls are, at least, girls in L'Engle's early books. It was published in 1949.
Flip doesn't get her own grown up book; but she, and her art, are mentioned in A Severed Wasp: A Novel, the 1982 sequel to 1945's The Small Rain.
L'Engle fans understand exactly what I'm talking about, and how fun it is to have characters pop up again and again.
By the way, last year, Camilla was reissued with a sweet new cover.
Because I'm showing off, I'll remind you that the sequel to this 1951 novel is A Live Coal In The Sea, published in 1996.
