The forthcoming movie of Audrey Niffenegger’s Time Traveler’s Wife is bringing new attention to the book. It went back on the  NYT Paperback Fiction July 5th list, after four years’ absence, and has steadily climbed to #4. Many libraries are showing heavy holds.

The publisher is not doing a tie-in edition. However, they have gone back to press for the trade paperback, adding the time-honored words, “Now a Major Motion Picture.” In the UK, Vintage is offering a tie-in, using the movie poster as cover art.
