A review of Audrey Niffenegger's book "Raven Girl" by Hedy Weiss in The Chicago Sun-Times.

It is not difficult to imagine how a ballet version could be realized. A design team would certainly find grand inspiration in Niffenegger’s stunningly reproduced etchings: the black, thickly feathered raven; the slender postman with his birdlike face; the delicate raven girl in utero; the elaborate nest perched atop an iron bed; the defenestrated doctor; the elegant bird-girl in her simple black slip dress; the Raven Prince with his tiny crown. A new fairy tale takes flight.
