Praise
"Sharply observed and warmly understanding--another fine piece of work from this talented author."
"Masterful in her authenticity, quicksilver dialogue, wise humor, and receptivity to mystery, Anshaw has created a deft and transfixing novel of fallibility and quiet glory." (starred review)
"Anshaw is herself a painter as well as a writer, and her visual sensitivity shows. . . . In sketches, landscapes, and erotic etchings, she carries not just one but all her characters through a quarter century of adulthood. And she makes the task look graceful."
"[The author] intimately dissects how one event or choice can alter the trajectory of a life, how a fork in the road can lead to wholly unexpected and divergent outcomes."
"Within a chapter it's clear that Anshaw has written not only a funny, smart and closely observed story, but also one that explores the way tragedy can follow hard on celebration, binding people together even more lastingly than passion."
From the Publisher
Annotation In her fourth novel, CARRY THE ONE, Carol Anshaw offers a stirring account of how one fateful event sets the course for the lives of three siblings. On the night of her wedding, Carol, her brother Nick, and her sister Alice, are involved in a drunk-driving accident that kills a girl. This tragedy informs, shadows, and haunts their lives, as they have careers, marriages, and children. Anshaw does a brilliant job with these central characters, revealing their fatal flaws alongside their endearing qualities. Nick, an astronomer, battles with addiction, while Carol struggles to raise her son amidst a failing marriage, and Alice finds her voice as a painter, obsessively creating portraits of the girl who died.
Editors Note When a car of inebriated guests from Carmen's wedding hits and kills a girl on a country road, Carmen and the people involved in the accident connect, disconnect and reconnect throughout 25 subsequent years of marriage, parenthood, holidays and tragedies. By the award-winning author of Aquamarine. 50,000 first printing.
