"Brilliant and necessary."
—Jade Colbert, The Globe and Mail
“Written with a cool but empathic distance, Double Teenage could be the definitive book of the “Young-Girl” as theorized by Tiqqun. It’s also about NAFTA, spectacular serial killings—including the Ciudad Juarez femicides—and media’s comforting lull.”
—Chris Kraus, Book Forum
"Murphy commits to telling the story in plain terms and then scrambles the narrative to ask larger questions. She earns our trust before opening the novel up to its glorious and challenging irresolution, inviting readers to investigate their own relationships to the representation and processing of oppression through art."
—Adèle Barclay, The Rusty Toque
“What begins as a familiar story soon ventures into a much bolder specificity: as Murphy follows the two central characters forward in time, the book’s scope begins to encompass questions of art, globalization, and the violence of everyday life.”
