Enchanted. The Irish myth of the love between Emer and Cuchulain comes to modern life in New York City, thanks to a novel by David Duchovny titled, Miss Subways. I thought about Borges and magical realism as I read this novel and reflected about the enchanted realms that might be alongside us all the time, if we would only look. That person in a rush toward the subway might be a god. I was engaged in this love story of two interesting and complex individuals, as well as the ways in which the city itself was the setting for enchanted love. Fans of love stories and NYC are those readers most likely to enjoy this novel, as are those who are well-versed in myths.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
