Book by David Duchovny, Review by Nikki Moylan
While Duchovny is best known for his role as FBI agent Fox Mulder on The X Files, his newest novel rivals any plotline from the 90s sci-fi television show. Following the life of second grade teacher, Emer, as she navigates a new relationship with a man who has a mysterious and somewhat sketchy presence. Her life is turned upside down when she finds strange visitors warning her about this man and the sacrifices she must make in order to keep the relationship. The story does a great job of blending fact and fiction, mixed with some mythological creatures in present day New York. Readers will enjoy the colorful cast of characters, like the over-the-top spoiled brats that run Emer’s classroom along with Emer’s humorous monologues.
