If you liked The Lost Symbol . . .

It occurs to me that now that Robert Langdon has raced around Rome, Paris, and D.C. he ought to go to New York; precisely to Madeleine L'Engle's current residence, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. His readers would love her; hers, I'm not so sure about.

The builders of St. John the Divine left cryptic messages in the stonework—messages that come to us all the way from the 1970s!

Hmmm. Not seeing it. Scary, but not in a good way.

Just imagine Tom Hanks in flared pants hitting a secret button to reveal a hologram of L'Engle in a rosary-beaded Nehru jacket.

Perhaps someone should spearhead a marketing campaign to repackage L'Engle's books a la Jane Eyre and Twilight. As in, give them misleading Dan Brown-esque jackets and slap a "Robert Langdon's childhood inspiration" sticker on the cover or something? THAT I would love to see. ;)

She gave the Cathedral the "Dan Brown" treatment herself - The Young Unicorns.
