About the Author: Audrey Niffenegger

Audrey Niffenegger (born June 13, 1963 in South Haven, Michigan) is a writer and artist. She is also a professor in the MFA Creative Writing Program at Columbia College Chicago.

Niffenegger's debut novel, The Time Traveler's Wife (2003), was a national bestseller. The Time Traveler's Wife is an unconventional love story that centers on a man with a strange genetic disorder that causes him to unpredictably time-travel and his wife, an artist, who has to cope with his constant absence.

Her Fearful Symmetry (2009), Niffenegger's second novel, is set in London's Highgate Cemetery where, during research for the book, Niffenegger acted as a tour guide.

Niffenegger has also published graphic and illustrated novels including: The Adventuress (2006), The Three Incestuous Sisters (2005), The Night Bookmobile (2009), and Raven Girl (2013). Raven Girl was adapted into a ballet by Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor and the Royal Opera House Ballet (London) in 2013.

A mid-career retrospective entitled "Awake in the Dream World: The Art of Audrey Niffenegger," was presented by the National Museum of Women in the Arts (Washington D.C.) in 2013. An accompanying exhibition catalogue examines several themes in Niffenegger's visual art including her explorations of life, mortality, and magic.

La prematura muerte de Elspeth Noblin, una excéntrica bibliófila londinense, transforma abruptamente la vida de sus sobrinas, las gemelas Julia y Valentina Poole. A pesar de que no conocían a su tía, ésta les ha dejado en herencia un magnífico piso con vistas al cementerio de Highgate, en Londres, con la condición de que jamás permitan a su madre cruzar el umbral del apartamento. Ansiosas por dejar atrás su aburrida rutina en un típico barrio residencial de Estados Unidos, las gemelas ignoran por completo lo que el destino les depara en Inglaterra. Por un lado, están sus nuevos vecinos: Martin Wells, un brillante y seductor erudito que vive atenazado por sus obsesiones, y el esquivo Robert Fanshaw, antiguo amante de Elspeth, un historiador que ha dedicado media vida a estudiar el famoso cementerio, visible desde su ventana. Y por otro, los secretos de su tía, que incluso después de muerta parece resistirse a abandonar su apartamento.

Con claros ecos de Wilkie Collins y el curioso protagonismo del cementerio de Highgate, la segunda novela de Audrey Niffenegger —autora de La mujer del viajero en el tiempo, un enorme éxito editorial con millones de ejemplares vendidos en todo el mundo— es una sugerente y apasionante novela gótica del siglo veintiuno que sin duda atrapará la imaginación del lector desde la primera página.
