The author of the New York Times bestseller The Time Travelerâ€™s Wife returns with another evocative â€śnovel in pictures,â€ť the much-anticipated follow-up to 2005â€™s The Three Incestuous Sisters. The Adventuress follows the dreamlike journey of an alchemistâ€™s daughter. After she is kidnapped by a lascivious baron, she turns herself into a moth and flees to the garden of a charming butterfly collector named Napoleon Bonaparte. The story of how the two become lovers, and how their affair ends in tragedy and transcendence, is told through Niffeneggerâ€™s spare prose and haunting aquatint etchings. With a stunning and distinctive visual style reminiscent of the work of Edward Gorey, this gothic romance packs the emotional heft of the worldâ€™s great fairy tales. It will delight fans of the authorâ€™s previous works and enchant an entirely new legion of readers.
