Before she wrote The Time Traveler's Wife, now a bestseller all around the world, Audrey Niffenegger's books were beautiful, handmade, exquisitely illustrated tales, published in editions as small as ten copies. They took many years to create, were bought by collectors and have been seen by few people. At last, as part of its acclaimed and very successful list of graphic books, Cape is delighted to publish The Three Incestuous Sisters in a beautiful edition at an affordable price. It is the story of three sisters, Clothilde, Ophile and Bettine, who live together in a lonely house by the sea. All three are rivals for the love of Paris, the lighthouse-keeper's son. When Paris chooses Bettine, and she becomes pregnant, the other sisters are jealous. Eventually, after the baby is born, they cause Bettine's death. Paris runs away to sea and Ophile, overwhelmed by remorse, throws herself from the lighthouse. Clothilde lives on in the house, sad and alone. Then one day a circus comes to town. In it is an amazing flying boy. She recognizes him as Bettine's child...… (plus d'informations)

This is a beautiful, artful, haunting illustrated book with a minimalist text. A picture book for grown-ups. With barely one sentence per page, the Gorey-like illustrations carry most of the narrative, which manages to be both operatic and understated, both tragic and charming. ( )

four minute read, certainly enjoyable for the creepster etched art! however, not very ... incestuous? it can be construed from the subtext, maybe, but i don't know. beginning to suspect audrey niffenegger and i aren't meant to be together. ( )

It's not like it was horrible, but I don't understand the appeal of this book even a little bit. I didn't think it was elegant, delicate, or any of the other words I've seen used to describe it. A fourteen-year "labor of love," dedicated to her sisters? Um... Why?

Niffenegger's sister theme, as seen in Her Fearful Symmetry and ghost theme, as found in both of her fictional novels, are repeated here by combining the visual arts with the written word. The two elements present a melodramatic scheme with aesthetic balance. ( )

Seems unduly influenced by Edward Gorey. This story is obviously a labor of love, but it didn't work for me at all. Creepy, pointless, and boring. ( )
