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.

Professional reviews

"David Duchovny ("The X-Files") narrates his third novel with a little help from his family. His writing chops--he has an M.A. in English literature from Yale--are apparent as he weaves ancient Irish myth and literary references into a modern-day New York City-based fantasy/romance. Emer's longtime boyfriend, Con, is marked for death by higher powers. But Emer is allowed to save his life by agreeing to forever remain separated from him. The pair doesn't remember their prior love, but their paths keep crossing nonetheless. Duchovny is relaxed and confident, never overdoing things and focusing on his characters. His ex-wife, TŽa Leoni, sounds like she's having a blast reading Emer's dialogue, and the featured voices of their two kids round out this audiobook's loose, easygoing charm.
