Duplex: A Novel

Duplex: A Novel - Kathryn Davis
At some point everyone who had ever known you, including much younger people, would forget you and die without ever having told people even younger than themselves about you--and then you would really be gone.


She tried to remember how long ago it had been that she'd felt the fluttering in her pocket that she'd thought was a common garden fairy but turned out to be nothing more than her heart. It was so easy to get the two of them mixed up.


Beautifully odd and oddly beautiful short novel that touches on the fearful and extraordinary inhabiting a mundane world of sycamore trees and love and disappointments.
