Publisher Description

This program is read by the author and Tea Leoni, with their daughter, West Duchovny. New York Times bestselling author David Duchovny reimagines the Irish mythological figure of Emer in Miss Subways, a darkly comic fantasy love story set in New York City. Emer is just a woman living in New York City who takes the subway, buys ice cream from the bodega on the corner, has writerly aspirations, and lives with her boyfriend, Con. But is this life she lives the only path she’s on? Taking inspiration from the myth of Emer and Cuchulain and featuring an all-star cast of mythical figures from all over the world, David Duchovny’s darkly funny fantasy audiobook Miss Subways is one woman’s trippy, mystical journey down parallel tracks of time and love. On the way, Emer will battle natural and supernatural forces to find her true voice, power, and destiny. A fairy tale of love lost and regained, Miss Subways is also a love letter to the city that enchants us all: New York.

  • “A marvelous, riveting novel on the mystical nature of love.”

    - Mary Karr, New York Times bestselling author
  • “A charming and wildly inventive comic novel…Duchovny has such love for his title character and for her New York that the affection fairly rumbles beneath the book’s riotous surface.”

    - Jess Walter, New York Times bestselling author
  • “New York City’s subway system provides the setting for this modern updating of an ancient myth about star-crossed lovers.”

    - USA Today
  • “This inventive, philosophical, comic romp is a Valentine to the New York familiar to its residents (the subways, the cheap umbrellas, the doormen, the delivery guys)…The reader will recognize this as a fairy tale for grown-ups, one that restores the world, and Emer."

    - Amazon.com
  • “An excellent exercise in magical realism…Infusing humor and New York history throughout, Duchovny captures the female psyche in Emer, whose inner monologs supply the bulk of this story.”

    - Library Journal
  • “A spooky domestic drama that is equal parts Nick Hornby and Neil Gaiman. In this tale based on an ancient Irish legend about two star-crossed lovers, Duchovny transposes the story to present-day New York…With mythical embodiments scattered among the book’s surprisingly down-to-earth milieu…Duchovny adroitly couches a Nora Ephron-esque romance in the sphere of Joseph Campbell. An entertaining, postmodern fairy tale that tests the boundaries of love and fate.”

    - Kirkus Reviews
  • As David Sedaris is to his essays in audio format, so is David Duchovny to his fiction. Neither author's works should ever be voiced by anyone but themselves, or crucial interpretations, inflections, and emotions would be lost. ...this treasured, crumpled love letter to a fantasy other-world of New York City is an essential purchase for libraries serving listeners who favor witty word play and realistically complex characters and enjoy finding the absurdity in daily life.
