L'Engle Contradiction

I often list Madeleine L'Engle as one of my favorite authors. Upon further reflection, though, I'm very particular about which types of her books are good. I love her young adult fiction, but not her adult fiction. I love her non-fiction autobiographies, but I can't stand her poetry, except for one piece that has more sentimental meaning than literary value for me. Certain Women had its moments, but for the most part I think I'll stick to L'Engle's fiction for children.
