'An exquisitely observed story of passion and friendship' Observer

Cate is a stage designer in Chicago, caught up in an unconventional web of friends and lovers, when her life is suddenly overturned. Walking into her best friend's kitchen one day, she witnesses an act of violence that forces her to do something she never thought she could do. Nothing will ever be the same again.

Wry, compassionate and startlingly beautiful, Right After the Weather explores the mess of trauma and love, and the reverberations of our actions.

'Smart and often funny, perceptive and brilliantly observed. I loved being submerged in Cate's chaotic life' Claire Fuller

'I loved it so much. Thought-provoking, emotionally intelligent and beautifully written' Daily Mail

'An exquisitely written, psychologically sophisticated novel, rich in insight and sensitivity to human vulnerability' NY Journal of Books

MEDIA REVIEWS

An exquisitely observed story of passion and friendship - Observer

I loved this so much. Thought-provoking, emotionally intelligent and beautifully written - Daily Mail

Carol Anshaw has written a wonderful character in Cate, who is juggling a series of events and relationships, none of which quite connect or overlap with each other. The writing is smart and often funny, and the detail, perceptive and brilliantly observed. I loved being submerged in Cate's chaotic life, and even as I closed the last page, I was completely sure that she and all the other characters were alive and well, and continuing to muddle through, somewhere in Chicago - Claire Fuller

Anshaw crafts an engaging narrative with her customary precision and tart humor. Another treat from the great Anshaw: sharply observed, unsentimentally compassionate, always cognizant of life's complexities - Kirkus starred review

Anshaw brings a fresh, keen voice to this story of modern lesbian life...[it] will captivate readers - Publishers Weekly starred review

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, on Carry the One

Superb . . . Anshaw sees her characters with startling clarity, an acute alertness to nuance, and no small helping of warmth and humour. A marvellous novel, grown-up, smart and emotionally intelligent - Patrick Ness, Guardian, on Carry the One

Her deftly episodic novel of love, time and off-beat family life is warm, generous and wise. Enormously engaging - Daily Mail on Carry the One

Beautifully observed . . . 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 - The New York Times on Carry the One
