Duplex

Kathryn Davis (Author)
Available

Description

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)

I fell] in love with Davis's writing . . . I'm grateful for every word . . . When you are lost in the uncanny woods of this astonishing, double-hinged book, just keep reading, and remember to look up. Kathryn Davis knows right where you are. --Lynda Barry, The New York Times Book Review

Reading this book is a blast . . . Duplex is a traditional love story tucked inside an adult fairy tale, wrapped in science fiction . . . Thankfully, the laws of quantum mechanics do not power Duplex's magnetism. Instead, it is Davis's beautiful prose, her psychological awareness. --Rosecrans Baldwin, NPR, All Things Considered
