Rate this:
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. This 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. It's been two years since the divorce, and Dana has moved on. Shes killing it at her law firm, shes never looked better, thanks to all those healthy meals she cooks, and shes thrown away Ethans 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 Ethans picture splashed across the front page of the New York Post -- "Nama-Slay: Yoga Couple Found Dead in New Mexico Cave" -- Dana discovers she hasnt 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"--Amazon.ca.
