    Description""When you add us up, you always have to carry the one.""Following a devastating moment in the hours after Carmen's wedding, three siblings and their friends move through the next twenty-five years under its long shadow. Through friendships and love affairs; marriage and divorce; parenthood, holidays, 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. Whether they take refuge in art, drugs, social justice, or love, Carol Anshaw's characters are sympathetic, funny, and uncannily familiar as they reflect back to us our deepest pain and longings, our joys, and our transcendent moments of understanding.

    Review quote
    "Sentence by intelligent sentence, the novelist makes . . . us feel the remorse and joy and fears much more sharply than we can sometimes know those same emotions in the lives of our closest siblings or friends or even in ourselves. . . . Carol Anshaw gets under the skin of her characters and under the reader's, as well."--Alan Cheuse, NPR's "All Things Considered"
