“Soulmates zigzags in a most effective way, lampooning the cult(ure) of spiritual growth as it makes you wonder if you might benefit from a few weeks with a guru. Grose has so much to say about breaking up, being alone, deciding what it means to be an adult.”

Informationen zum Autor

Zusammenfassung

"For anyone who has ever suspected something sinister lurking behind the craze of new-age spirituality, Jessica Grose has crafted just the tale for you. With the delicious bite of satire and the page-turning satisfaction of a thriller, Soulmates is a deeply compelling, funny and sharply observed look at just how far we will go to achieve inner peace."—Lena Dunham

A clever, timely novel about a marriage, and infidelity, 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 page-turning 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.

Klappentext

A clever and cunning novel, by the author of Sad Desk Salad, about infidelity, enlightenment, and the difference between perception and reality. In marriage, as in yoga, sometimes the truth is not clear to us until the savasana hits the floor.

 It’s been two years since the divorce and Dana has moved on. She’s killing it at her law firm, she’s eating super clean, and she’s thrown out Ethan’s ratty plaid recliner. Dana hardly thinks about her ex-husband anymore—she almost never dwells on how the man she’d loved since college ran away to the Southwest with a crunchy crop-topped yoga strumpet, spouting spiritual claptrap that she 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 realizes she hasn’t fully let go of Ethan or the past. The press speculates that it was a murder-suicide, and Ethan’s to blame. How could the man she knew be a killer? Anxious to find answers that might give her closure, Dana begins to dig into the mystery surrounding Ethan’s death. Sifting through the clues of his life, Dana finds herself transported back to the final years of their union. . . and discovers that nothing is as it appears to be.

A novel of marriage, murder, and meditation, Soulmates is a delicious page-turner and a timely satire of our feel-good culture, an addictive and nuanced look at contemporary relationships from one of the sharpest writers working today.
