The (Super) Natural

Audrey Niffenegger struck publishing gold with her best-selling first novel, The Time Traveler’s Wife, recently made into a movie. Now the Chicago author is back with another story tinged with the otherworldly—ghosts this time. Can the new novel live up to high expectations—and the $5-million payday it fetched?

Double take: In her new novel, Niffenegger (opposite) tells the tale of Lake Forest twins who settle in their late aunt’s London apartment. Or as she puts it, “Young ingénues come over from America and get into trouble.”

 

She craves strangeness. The weird, the bizarre, the inexplicable—she is repeatedly drawn to all of it. “It’s the boredom factor,” says Audrey Niffenegger, 46. “If I ever got a tattoo, it would say Easily Bored. On the surface, people seem ordinary. But if you chose anyone and got to know him or her very, very well, there would be something about that person that was extraordinarily peculiar.” And she finds that fascinating.
