"And So We Die, Having First Slept" is a novel about marriage. Brett is older than Cash by a decade; both are world-weary — one from negotiating brain trauma and bad love, the other from hiding and reviving addiction. Bath salts and babies work their 10-year relationship, forcing them to begin again one way or another.
"Weird, true, and singular."
"Jennifer Spiegel's much-anticipated second novel teems with intelligence and candor, assuredly. But oh, more than that, even, it's that voice — it 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."
