Soulmates

(2016)
A novel by

 
 
A clever, timely novel about a marriage and infidelity and the meaning of true spirituality, perception, and reality, from the author of Sad Desk Salad, in which a scorned ex-wife tries to puzzle out the pieces of her husband's mysterious death at a yoga retreat and their life together.

It's been two years since the divorce, and Dana has moved on. She's killing it at her law firm; she's never looked better, thanks to all those healthy meals she cooks; and she's thrown away Ethan's ratty old plaid recliner. She hardly thinks about her husband - ex-husband - anymore or about how the man she'd known since college ran away to the Southwest with a yoga instructor, spouting spiritual claptrap that Dana still can't comprehend.

But when she sees Ethan's picture splashed across the front page of the New York Post - "Nama-Slay: Yoga Couple Found Dead in New Mexico Cave" - Dana discovers she hasn't fully let go of Ethan or the past. The article implies that it was a murder-suicide, and Ethan's to blame. How could the man she once loved so deeply be a killer?

Restless to find answers that might help her finally to let go, Dana begins to dig into the mystery surrounding Ethan's death. Sifting through the clues of his life, Dana finds herself back in the last years of their marriage...and discovers that their relationship - like Ethan's death - wasn't what it appeared to be.

A novel of marriage, meditation, and all the spaces in between, Soulmates is a pause-resisting mystery, a delicious satire of our feel-good spiritual culture, and a nuanced look at contemporary relationships by one of the sharpest writers working today.
