The stories within are strange and heady, original and surprising. In them, the Duchamp heroine often finds herself pulled into some fascinating new world. The Duchamp reader is in the same position, though much happier to be there. Highly recommended."

Brilliant. Duchamp is the queen of originality when it comes to compelling, well-crafted short science-fiction novellas. We are drawn into these unexpected new worlds, unlike any we have traveled with other science-fiction writers. She takes us on an emotional, physical journey with her heroines until we too, feel their exhaustion, their triumph, their compassion, and most importantly, their humanity/alienity. Highly recommended!

When she finished it, she allowed the novel to circulate via photocopies, and it ...more
