Customer reviews

The Night Bookmobile is the third graphic novel by the best-selling author of The Time-Traveller's Wife, Audrey Niffenegger. It is a short story which has been beautifully illustrated by Niffenegger and tells the story of Alexandra who, wandering the streets of Chicago after an argument with her boyfriend late one night, comes across the night bookmobile. When she accepts the librarian's invitation to browse, she finds that, to her amazement, it contains every book she has ever read. When the bookmobile leaves at dawn, finding it again becomes an obsession for Alexandra. This is a haunting tale brought to life by Niffenegger's evocative full-colour pen-and-ink work.
