Audrey NiffeneggerISBN: 081097052X;
The author of the New York Times bestseller The Time Traveler's Wife returns with another evocative ?novel in pictures,? the much-anticipated follow-up to 2005's The Three Incestuous Sisters. The Adventuress follows the dremlike journey of an alchemist's daughter. After she is kidnapped by a lascivious baron, she turns herself into a moth and flees to the garden of a charming butterfly collector named Napoleon Bonaparte. The story of how the two become lovers, and how theiraffair ends in tragedy and transcendence, is told through Niffenegger's spare prose and haunting aquatint etchings. With a stunning and distinctive visual style reminiscent of the work of Edward Gorey, this gothic romance packs the emotional heft of the wrld's great fairy tales. It will delight fans of the author's previous works and enchant an entirely new legion of readers.
