In Bizarre Romance art and love have combined in person and on the page... Niffenegger is very much a child of Angela Carter. But there's a lightness to Niffenegger's writing that rubs off here on her husband... in its combination of pictures and words it has an elusive thrill to it... beautiful. -- Teddy Jamieson * Herald Scotland *
From gentle whimsy, through to magical realism and disturbing horror, Niffenegger and Campbell shepherd us through a series of off-kilter settings in which the ordinary rubs up against the surreal... Campbell's images perfectly capture the juxtaposition of the everyday with the extraordinary. -- Lucy Scholes * The Times Literary Supplement *
I would recommend taking your time with Bizarre Romance, give yourself the chance to luxuriate in each piece in turn. Nifenegger's prose is straightforward and magical - just the right mix of the two, but knowing this is a collaborative work between a married couple brings an extra edge of magic to the stories. They are far from schmaltzy, but rather bittersweet, pragmatic and tender. Both creators have a playful but thorough grasp of the potential of the comic book form. -- Jenny Robins * Quietus *
