This book is full of rich prose and gorgeous illustrations. Like Audrey Niffenegger's other works, The Three Incestuous Sisters is layered and deeply touching.

clothildelover, November 12, 2006 (view all comments by clothildelover)
Reading this groundbreaking novel seriously changed my life. It was so surreally disturbing that I no longer know who I am as a human being in this world. Life means nothing...all I know is that clothilde now rules my life. She is my god. She is my demon..every waking moment, she is with me. She has become my "safe word". clothilde..clothilde...when will I be yours...?

Product details 176 pages Harry N. Abrams - English 9780810959279 Reviews:
"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Niffenegger, author of the two-plus-million-copy bestseller The Time Traveler's Wife, showcases her artistic talent in an oversized 'novel in pictures' she calls 'the book of my heart, a fourteen-year labor of love.' It's the strange and haunting story of three sisters who 'lived together in a lonely house by the sea, near the lighthouse, miles away from the city.' Blonde Bettine is the youngest and prettiest, redhead Clothilde is 'the most talented' and blue-haired Ophile, the eldest, is considered the smartest. When lightning kills the lighthouse keeper, his son, Paris, arrives to take his place; Paris and Bettine quickly fall in love and conceive a child. Jealous Ophile misbehaves badly; psychic Clothilde communes with the unborn baby, whom she names the Saint; and Bettine and Paris run away to the city, where tragedy strikes. Niffenegger's spare, full-page, sepia-toned aquatints ('an idiosyncratic, antique' medium) are evocative and Gorey-esque; they tell the story more than the minimalist prose does. And Niffenegger's afterword is illuminating, both about the process of making aquatints and about her productive methods of procrastination: The Time Traveler's Wife, she reveals, 'started its life as the project I played with when I should have been finishing Sisters.' (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review" by , "[E]erily beautiful....Niffenegger's grim yet erotic tale and stunningly moody gothic prints possess the sly subversion of Edward Gorey, the emotional valence of Edvard Munch, and her very own brilliant use of iconographic pattern, surprising perspective, and tensile line in the service of a delectable, otherworldly sensibility."
"Review" by , "An elegant volume that feels more like a catalog for an art exhibition....Each plate is imbued with a somber beauty and intensity that will draw the reader/viewer back for more thorough and rewarding scrutiny."
"Synopsis" by , Haunting illustrations and lyrical prose depict a timeless saga of love, revenge, and ultimately, transcendence, in a tale of three very different sisters: one who is beautiful, one who is smart, and one who is talented.
