A Wrinkle in Elvis



Above is Elvis contemplating The Severed Wasp, one of the Madeleine L'Engle's books for adults. The plot includes a sympathetic Nazi, a randy Catholic priest, a few horrific injuries to children, weighty discussions of classical music and theological matters (and not a little proselytizing), and a mystery of sorts centering around New York's glorious Cathedral Church of St. John Divine. Although I found this book absurd, for some reason I couldn't put it down--but just the thought of such a complicated story exhausted Elvis.
