Duplex

(2013)
A novel by

 
"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"
