Join us at Women and Children First as we celebrate the launch of BIZARRE ROMANCE. 

International bestselling authors Audrey Niffenegger and Eddie Campbell, have collaborated to create 13 quirky, irreverent vignettes about love, loss, fairies, regret, wanton wrongheadedness, cats, supernatural exterminators, and more cats! With Niffenegger’s sharp, imaginative prose and Campbell’s diverse comic art styles, Bizarre Romance explores the good, the bad, the ugly, and the just plain weird through re-imaginings of classic fairy tale characters, love letters during the apocalypse, and more. 

Audrey Niffenegger is the author of the international bestsellers The Time Traveler’s Wife and Her Fearful Symmetry, as well as a fine artist who has published four illustrated, including Raven Girl, and The Night Bookmobile

Eddie Campbell is an award-winning comics writer and artist. His work includes From Hell with Alan Moore as well as the autobiographical Alec: The Years Have Pants and The Playwright (with Daren White). They both live in Chicago and London.
