Carry the One free pdf In "Carry the One", Carol Anshaw explores the after effects of one night's terrible trauma on three siblings over 25 years. In the early hours of the morning, following a wedding reception, a car filled with stoned, drunk and sleepy guests accidentally hits and kills a girl on a dark country road. For the next twenty-five years, the lives of those involved are subtly shaped by this tragic moment. Through friendships and love affairs, marriage and divorce, parenthood, addiction, and the modest calamities and triumphs of ordinary days, "Carry the One" shows how one life affects another and how those who thrive and those who self-destruct are closer to each other than we'd expect. "Here's passion and addiction, guilt and damage, all the beautiful mess of family life. "Carry the One" will lift readers off their feet and bear them along on its eloquent tide". (Emma Donoghue). "Her deftly episodic novel of love, time and off-beat family life is warm, generous and wise. An enormously engaging novel". ("Daily Mail"). ""Carry The One" is a finely crafted novel, full of phrases you want to cut out and keep, and characters you think you know. It is delicate in its touch, yet huge in its reach". ("Observer"). "Superb...Anshaw sees her characters with startling clarity and no small helping of warmth and humour...Anshaw's writing [is] subtle, bemused, kind and smart, she nails moment after moment..."Carry The One" is a marvellous novel, grown-up, smart and emotionally intelligent about people who, like the rest of us, try but mostly fail to keep their ducks in a row". (Patrick Ness, "Guardian"). "A tender tale of what happens to ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances". ("Marie Claire"). "A funny, vivid and pingingly true story about longing and the pain of love. Anshaw conveys beefy emotions and life-changing events with the most gossamer of touches". (Rachel Johnson, "Vogue"). "If you love Jonathan Franzen, you'll love this compelling book". ("Entertainment Weekly"). Carol Anshaw is the author of "Aquamarine", "Seven Moves", and "Lucky in the Corner". She lives in Chicago.
