Twisted 'Sisters'

''Time Traveler's Wife'' author goes ''visual.'' Audrey Niffenegger illustrates her dark side with new novel

Suicide, infanticide, and green boys who fly — not necessarily things one would associate with Audrey Niffenegger, author of 2003's best-seller The Time Traveler's Wife. Yet, all that can be found in her ''visual novel,'' The Three Incestuous Sisters. ''This is more typical of me than Time Traveler's Wife,'' says Niffenegger, 40, a Chicago-based artist by trade. ''I have a long-term preoccupation with creepiness.''
