The Time Traveler’s Wife
Audrey Niffenegger talks to the Globe and Mail about how she got the idea for the book.
The Time Traveler’s Wife is the story of Henry DeTamble, a librarian with Chrono-Displacement disorder, a rare genetic condition that transports him through time and space, mostly to periods within his own life. It’s during one of these jaunts that the Mobius strip of cause and effect takes shape: A married, middle-aged Henry first meets his wife Clare as a six-year-old girl. The book chronicles their tortured relationship through past, present and future.
She also talks about what happened after Brad and Jen took an interest in her work.
