New York, NY (September 23, 2013) – Marking the 10th anniversary of its publication, THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE by New York Times bestselling author Audrey Niffenegger is available today for the first time as an e-book, enhanced with 25 new pages from an upcoming sequel.
The digital version of this modern classic is available exclusively from Zola Books, an e-book retailer on a mission to make e-reading more enjoyable and to support independent bookstores by sharing profits. Ms. Niffenegger is an early investor in Zola Books.
THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE is the story of art student Clare Abshire and librarian Henry DeTamble, who meet when he is twenty-eight and she is twenty. Though Henry has never met Clare before, Clare has known Henry since she was six – impossible but true, because Henry finds himself periodically displaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. Henry and Clare's attempts to live a normal life together are threatened by a force they can neither prevent nor control, making their love story intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.
First published in 2003, THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE marked Niffenegger’s literary debut. With over 7 million copies sold worldwide, the critically acclaimed* book received terrific word-of-mouth support from fans, libraries and book clubs all across the US in the months after its release. It was made into a film starring Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams in 2009.
The pages from the as-yet-untitled sequel focus on Henry and Clare’s daughter Alba, who as an adult finds herself caught between her real-time husband, Zach, and her other husband, Oliver, a fellow time-traveler and musician.
“It’s been intense to revisit the world of THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE after ten years; Alba’s life has complications and delights that surprise even me. It’s funny how the imagination works quietly, secretly, just waiting to be asked for more story and serving it up as though it’s been there all along. I hope readers will be pleased, both with the new story and with Zola," said Niffenegger. "I am excited to be working with Zola Books; we are all are eager to give both readers and writers the best possible e-book experience and to benefit the community of book shops and publishers, too."
