Event Description

Selection is Carry the One by Carol Anshaw 

When you add us up, you always have to carry the one. 

Following a devastatng moment in the hours after Carmen's wedding, three siblings 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.
