People the world over mourn the loss of L'Engle. I can still remember the awesome impact of reading A Wrinkle in Time and beginning to think about philosophy and cosmology in my childish way. Oddly enough, one of the most strangely touching paeans to the writer comes from the usually churlish and snarky Gawker. Get under someone's skin at a vulnerable age and you are forever in their heart.
