9780099516262: The Time Traveler's Wife

This is the extraordinary love story of Clare and Henry who met when Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-two and Henry thirty. Impossible but true, because Henry suffers from a rare condition where his genetic clock periodically resets and he finds himself pulled suddenly into his past or future. In the face of this force they can neither prevent nor control, Henry and Clare's struggle to lead normal lives is both intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.

Book Description:

Published in hardcover by MacAdam/Cage Publishing, 2003, 193156146X

From the Back Cover:

"An enchanting novel, beautifully crafted and as dazzlingly imaginative as it is dizzyingly romantic."--Scott Turow

A most untraditional story, this is the celebrated tale of Henry DeTamble, a dashing, adventuresome librarian who travels involuntarily through time, and Clare Abshire, an artist whose life takes a natural sequential course. Henry and Clare's passionate affair endures across a sea of time and captures them in an impossibly romantic trap that tests the strength of fate and basks in the bonds of love.

One of People magazine's Top Ten Books of the Year

"[A] time-travel love story par excellence. . . . It will be a hard-hearted reader who is not moved to tears by this soaring celebration of the victory of love over time." -- Chicago Tribune

Audrey Niffenegger is a professor in the M.F.A. program at the Columbia College Chicago Center for Book and Paper Arts. She lives in Chicago. The Time Traveler's Wife is her first novel; her second, Her Fearful Symmetry, takes place next to London's Highgate Cemetery.
