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 novel 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.

David Duchovny is a television, stage, and screen actor, as well as a screenwriter and director. He lives in New York and Los Angeles.


David Duchovny's Miss Subways is a marvelous, riveting novel on the mystical nature of love. In it, a scarred, unlikely girl becomes a teacher in all meanings of the word. You want to cheer when she takes charge of her destiny. Unputdownable! --Mary Karr Miss Subways is a charming and wildly inventive comic novel--fantastical and sardonic; rich in myth, literature, philosophy and satire. David 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, author of Beautiful Ruins
