It was an author event with <a href=”https://www.audreyniffenegger.com”>Audrey Niffenegger</a> and <a href=”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eddie_Campbell”>Eddie Campbell.</a> They’ve made a book together. And, it turns out, they’re married. To each other, that is.</p> <p>I had no idea that this was the case. Who’s in charge of telling me about things? Cos they’re falling down on the job.</p> <p>Not that there’s any reason why I should know, of course. They’re both creators whose work I’ve enjoyed in the past, but that’s all.</p> <p>Anyway, this was the standard sort of author talk/interview thing, led by a guy who didn’t introduce himself, but according to the event page was “international comics expert, and man at the crossroads, <a href=”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Gravett”>Paul Gravett</a>“.<sup id=”fnref:escape”><a class=”footnote-ref” href=”https://devilgate.org/blog/2018/04/10/the-audrey-and-eddie-show/#fn:escape”>1</a></sup></p> <p>It was all very good. I bought the book, <cite>Bizarre Romance</cite>. Looks like it’ll be fun. I didn’t stay for the signing, because I’m not that bothered about autographs. And I couldn’t think of any questions at the Q&amp;A, which is also normal.</p> <p>Interestingly (and maybe this is already common knowledge too) Niffenegger is writing a sequel to <cite>The Time Traveller’s Wife</cite><sup id=”fnref:correct”><a class=”footnote-ref” href=”https://devilgate.org/blog/2018/04/10/the-audrey-and-eddie-show/#fn:correct”>2</a></sup> to be called <cite>The Other Husband</cite>.</p> <div class=”footnote”> <hr> <ol> <li id=”fn:escape”> <p>Oh, OK, he published <a href=”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escape_(magazine)”><cite>Escape</cite> magazine.</a> I used to get that sometimes. <a class=”footnote-backref” href=”https://devilgate.org/blog/2018/04/10/the-audrey-and-eddie-show/#fnref:escape” title=”Jump back to footnote 1 in the text”>↩</a></p> </li> <li id=”fn:correct”> <p>I insist on spelling the title correctly. <a class=”footnote-backref” href=”https://devilgate.org/blog/2018/04/10/the-audrey-and-eddie-show/#fnref:correct” title=”Jump back to footnote 2 in the text”>↩</a></p> </li> </ol> </div></div>AlecAudrey NiffeneggerBookscomicsEddie Campbellgraphic novelssequelsThe Time Traveller’s Wifehttps://devilgate.org/blog/2018/04/10/the-audrey-and-eddie-show/Tue, 10 Apr 2018 21:20:07 GMT
