Once there was a Postman who fell in love with a Raven.
So begins the tale of a postman who encounters a fledgling raven while on the edge of his route and decides to bring her home. The unlikely couple falls in love and conceives a child―an extraordinary raven girl trapped in a human body. The raven girl feels imprisoned by her arms and legs and covets wings and the ability to fly. Betwixt and between, she reluctantly grows into a young woman, until one day she meets an unorthodox doctor who is willing to change her.
One of the world’s most beloved storytellers has crafted a dark fairy tale full of wonderment and longing. Complete with Audrey Niffenegger’s bewitching etchings and paintings, Raven Girl explores the bounds of transformation and possibility.

Praise for Raven Girl:

“With her signature wit, wry melancholy, and keen gothic sensibility, Niffenegger weds the fabulous with the deeply human in this concentrated, suspenseful fable. . . .” ---Booklist, Starred Review

About the Author:

Audrey Niffenegger is the author of the international bestsellers The Time Traveler’s Wife and Her Fearful Symmetry, as well as a fine artist who has published three illustrated books with Abrams: The Three Incestuous Sisters, The Adventuress, and The Night Bookmobile. She lives in Chicago and London.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Following her eerie graphic novel, The Night Bookmobile (2010), multitalented Niffenegger returns to the elegant mode of her novels-in-pictures (The Three Incestuous Sisters, 2005; The Adventuress, 2006) in this by turns brooding and radiant modern fairy tale. A solitary postman serving a “desolate” outpost has nightmares about e-mail and fears he’ll never have an adventure. Then one fateful day he delivers a letter to a raven’s nest and finds a fledgling on the ground. He takes the little girl raven home; she matures quickly, relishing “television and junk food,” and they fall in love. Their egg-hatched daughter looks human, but she squawks instead of speaks, longs to fly, and confides, “I feel all wrong.” Away at college, she meets a plastic surgeon who thinks he can help. With her signature mordant wit, wry melancholy, and keen gothic sensibility, Niffenegger weds the fabulous with the deeply human in this concentrated, suspenseful fable of unlikely love, a struggle for selfhood, and a dramatic metamorphosis. Niffenegger’s prose is precise and stinging, her etchings shadowed and graceful, her spellbinding story suffused with implications. Created in response to an invitation to collaborate with London’s Royal Ballet, Raven Girl will take flight as a book and onstage. --Donna Seaman
