This September, Audrey Niffenegger will publish Her Fearful Symmetry: A Novel (Scribner), about the lives of twin girls who inherit a home near Highgate cemetery in London. According to the NY Times, she received an advance of US$5 million. Currently the trade paperback edition of The Time Traveler’s Wife is one of the top five bestsellers on the New York Times Bestseller list.
