Sarah Hughes has interviewed Audrey and Eddie for i News (inews.co.uk.) 

Collaboration can be a tricky business, rife with the possibilities for misunderstandings or battles over two different visions. Throw a new marriage into the mix and surely the potential for argument and falling out is high? “Not at all,” says Audrey Niffenegger, best-selling author of The Time Traveller’s Wife. She has spent the past year working with her new husband, Scottish comics artist and cartoonist, Eddie Campbell on Bizarre Romance, a captivating set of short stories written by her and drawn by him. “In fact, because we haven’t been married long we still had that newly-wed energy, that sense of being besotted with each other, which really helped.”

How a best-selling wife and husband enchant readers in the anthology ‘Bizarre Romance’

How a best-selling wife and husband enchant readers in the anthology ‘Bizarre Romance’

Michael Cavna recently interviewed Eddie and Audrey for the Washington Post

When it comes to using creative frameworks, the “Bizarre Romance” authors also thought in terms of music — specifically, the structure of an album.
The anthology’s 13 chapters, which are each very distinct in their visual styles, all “concern themes that I’ve been interested in all my life: love and loss, the ordinary and the fantastic, the relationship between art and daily life,” Niffenegger says. “When we collected them and began to think about how to shape them into a book, we started talking about albums and mix tapes, and how it would be great if each story had art that exactly suited it, like the instrumentation of a song, instead of trying to come up with one style that straitjacketed them all into conformity.

Bizarre Romance: Forbidden Planet Review

Bizarre Romance: Forbidden Planet Review

Joe Gordon has just published a review on the Forbidden Planet blog. From his review:

"The stories rotate around love and loss and grief and joy, but there is a quite delightful playfulness running through them all, a deft lightness of touch, such that even the stories that have sadness in them are never maudlin or overly sentimental but leave you with a warm feeling."

Brideshead Revisited is maddeningly slow – just like real life

Brideshead Revisited is maddeningly slow – just like real life

Brideshead Revisited first aired in America in the winter of 1982. I was in art school then, and living with my parents because we couldn’t afford the extra expense of me living on my own. I had never travelled outside my country; I grew up in Chicago and all my ideas about the rest of the world came from reading books. The only thing I had read by Evelyn Waugh was a short story, “The Man Who Liked Dickens”.
