Friday Freebie: And So We Die, Having First Slept by Jennifer Spiegel

Congratulations to Julie Geisler, winner of last week’s Friday Freebie: Midnight by Victoria Shorr.

This week’s giveaway is for And So We Die, Having First Slept by Jennifer Spiegel (author of The Freak Chronicles and Love Slave). Here’s what Tim Horvath, author of Understories, had to say about the new book: “Jennifer Spiegel’s much-anticipated second novel teems with intelligence and candor, assuredly. But oh, more than that, even, it’s that voiceit darts, it vamps, it dives, and most of all it scrutinizes, squarely, head-on, witty and withering. In this multitudinous soliloquy of a book, we get the relentless quest of a self-determined to narrate itself into being and becoming. Devour it; I did.”

And So We Die, Having First Slept is a novel about marriage, youth, middle-age, Gen X, and fidelity. Brett is older than Cash by a decade; both are world-wearyone from negotiating brain trauma and rehab and the absence of pretty boys, the other from addiction and road trips and even a Billy Graham crusade. Bath salts and babies work on their ten-year relationship, forcing them to begin again one way or another.
