Utterly compelling . . . Davis writes with a stunning brilliance, creating fractured worlds that are both extraordinary and routine. --The Boston Globe
A coming-of-age-meets-dystopian-fantasy-meets-alternate-reality novel, or maybe an Ionesco-meets-Beckett-meets-Oulipo novel . . . The world Duplex] describes has gone cuckoo while its characters' anxieties remain stubbornly, drably, daringly familiar. --Tom Bissell, Harper's Magazine
Enchanting . . . Hums beautifully to its own rhythm. It's a series of dreamlike, often erotic, images and interconnected plot lines that . . . swell to create an intoxicating atmosphere. --Slate
For fans of the fantastical, Davis's writing style is a glass of ice-cold water in today's desert of conventional fiction. --Star Tribune (Minneapolis)
