From The New York Times bestselling author of Carry the One, a new novel that explores what happens when a group of friends are confronted with their worst fears . . . As she turns off the ignition and gets out of the car, the DJ is saying, “New song by Neko Case, right after the weather-” Cate loves Neko Case, and if she’s quick, she can get back in time to hear the song. Cate is a stage designer in her early forties, embroiled in theatre projects and the lives of her unconventional Chicago friends and lovers, when her life is suddenly overturned. On the day she gets out of her car and into her best friend’s kitchen, she witnesses an act of violence that forces her to do something she would never have thought she could do. The bubble of her safe, bohemian world is shattered. Right After the Weather explores what happens when two worlds collide. Written with astonishing insight into the nuances of human nature, this is a beautifully observed and compassionate novel about love, trauma and the reverberations of our actions. ______________________ Praise for Carry the One ‘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 ‘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 ‘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 show more
