DON'T FEAR THE WEEPER

DON'T FEAR THE WEEPER

Author Audrey Niffenegger reads from Her Fearful Symmetry at Skylight Books. The graphic novelist and author of the cosmological weeper The Time Traveler's Wife received a reported $5 million advance for her latest book. Set in London's Highgate Cemetery, the novel's heroine returns from the beyond after dying of cancer, to haunt the people who mourn her -- sometimes acidly and sometimes joyously; apparently, there's never a dull moment for the invisible and the all-seeing.
