Panel Borders: Audrey Niffenegger – Librarians and other time travellers in print

Panel Borders: Audrey Niffenegger – Librarians and other time travellers in print

Continuing our month of shows looking at newspaper comics, Alex Fitch talks to author and fine artist Audrey Niffenegger about her graphic novella The Night Bookmobile which was serialised in The Guardian in 2008 and is now available as a hardback collected edition from Jonathan Cape. Alex and Audrey also talk about her picture books for adults – The Three Incestuous Sisters and The Adventuress – and the relationship between The Time Traveller’s Wife and the depiction of non-linear storytelling in comics, Doctor Who and the work of Jorge Luis Borges.
