"I can write the pants off any man," declares Sybil Weatherfield, the plucky hero of Jennifer Spiegel’s Love Slave. A literary novel set in 1995 New York, Love Slave follows Weatherfield and her strange friends as they frustrate chick-lit expectations (though they’re unaware that they’re doing so) in this uproarious, genre-breaking spree. By day Sybil is an office temp, and by night she’s a columnist for New York Shock, a chatty rag in which she writes a column called "Abscess" — a wound that never heals. Her friends include a paper-pusher for a human rights organization, and the lead singer of a local rock band called Glass Half Empty. Full of cultural detail, mid-'90s observations, and early adulthood anxieties, Weatherfield’s story of finding love ultimately casts an ironic eye on what it means to be a love slave.

Review:

"Spiegel's novel evokes the psychic angst of Manhattanites presumptuous enough to describe themselves as struggling artistes, yet entitled enough to melt down when they can't order breakfast in a diner after 11am...the writing is fresh and witty, and Sybil is a sympathetic character worthy of rooting for as she searches for something to believe in."  - Publishers Weekly 
             
"Love Slave by Jennifer Spiegel rounds out my list [for Best Books of 2012]. . . . I assumed it would be a chick-littish narrative that I would forget as soon as I put it down. Instead of that, Love Slave turns out to be an engaging look at 90s-era Manhattan from an advice columnist yearning for more out of life (steady career, maybe grad school), but who is afraid of leaving the Village (which she considers the center of American, maybe global, culture). Reviewers [The Washington Post] have likened it to Sex and the City, but Spiegel digs much deeper, and the results are much more amusing and affecting." - David Duhr, for Chamber Four, in his picks for Best Books of 2012
