THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE by AUDREY NIFFENEGGER
Hardcover rel: MacAdam/Cage Publishing; Today Show Book
Club edition (September 17, 2003) -
The Time Traveler's Wife, is the story of Clare, a
beautiful art student, and Henry, an adventuresome
librarian, who have known each other since Clare was six
and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was
twenty-three and Henry thirty-one. Impossible but true,
because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with
Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic
clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled
to moments of emotional gravity in his life, past and
future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences
unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.
The Time Traveler's Wife depicts the effects of time travel
on Henry and Clare's marriage and their passionate love for
each other as the story unfolds from both points of view.
Clare and Henry attempt to live normal lives, pursuing
familiar goals—steady jobs, good friends, children of their
own. All of this is threatened by something they can
neither prevent nor control.
