Pormenores da obra

Carry the One por Carol Anshaw

  1. 10
    Aquamarine por Carol Anshaw (DanieXJ)
    DanieXJ: Both of these Carol Anshaw books take a look at life from a variety of points of view and yet have a plot throughout as well and don't get lost in the philosophizing.
  2. 00
    The Woman Upstairs por Claire Messud (jayne_charles)
    jayne_charles: Not many parallels between these two books plot-wise, but they had a strikingly similar tone and while reading one I was constantly reminded of the other.

Couldn't find it in me to finish this book. Great concept, sub par execution.

Anshaw is a genius at pulling together family and friend strands into a united whole world for the reader, penetrating the depths of all her characters, even the minor ones. In this novel, we meet three siblings - Alice, Nick, and Carmen - immediately after a disastrous drunk and drugged-driving accident, when a little girl is hit and run over following Carmen's wedding. With the tragedy opening the novel, we follow what becomes of those who were in the car and the newlyweds. Alice becomes a famous artist stuck in a bad groove with her flighty, ambitious girlfriend, Carmen's husband eventually divorces her to run off with a missionary, and Nick, an astronomer, has a secret about the accident which sends him over the line into addiction. As the siblings age, the accident's impact reaches into their lives with amazing force, and the reader will ache for their subsequent good and bad decisions.

Quotes: "She was a terrible actress, wooden. Often she appeared stunned by the other actor's line."

"It was not a good situation when the same person provided the pain and the analgesic."

"I don't think he's terribly interested in a tragedy so big that everyone else is in on it. He's a tragedy snob." ( )

I'm struggling to rate this book. I don't know what it was about it but I felt relieved to finish it.
Siblings Carmen, Alice and Nick along with a few friends carry a burden. On their wedding night Carmen and Matt watched their siblings departure. They were weaving down the road in a car driven by a drunken, stoned driver with no headlights on. Of course the outcome was disastrous when they accidentally hit and kill a young girl. The book follows the lives of the three siblings over the next twenty five years. Yes their lives continue on but they never forget the child. They all pay a price (although it sounds like a fairly dysfunctional childhood contributed) - Carmen's marriage dissolves, Nick battles addiction and Alice while painting the girl into her art struggles with commitment to relationships. Although well-written, I failed to connect with the characters and their struggles. It has had many positive reviews but I tired of the emphasis on lesbian sexual encounters. I must be getting old...

Oh, the melodrama..... Don't bother. ( )

On way home from Carmen's wedding, siblings and their friends/lovers hit and kill a young girl. This novel traces their stories -- relationships, careers, addictions, etc. -- and the ongoing effect the accident has on Carmen and the five people in the car. The characters are well developed and complex; the writing is strong. The novel shows how one event can change your perspective on life, and how different people are affected differently by the same event. I'd like to read more by this author. ( )

Carol Anshaw's superb Carry the One opens in 1983, with a wedding and a tragedy in quick succession. The wedding of Carmen and Matt is a pleasantly raucous affair, held outdoors at a bohemian farm in rural Wisconsin. Folk songs are loudly sung, and as a pleasant haze of alcohol and pot permeates the evening, Carmen hopes, with only a little apprehension, "to sit out this early phase of her marriage, the mortifying dances segment".....

The streets along the water slipstreamed with bicycle traffic. --Alice in Amsterdam
She only knew it was him by the way the crowd deferred and dispersed, as though street-sweeping brushes spun in front of him while he moved slowly along the perimeter of paintings. --Alice referring to Kees Verwey, a famous painter, at her museum showing in Amsterdam
She anticipated his worst criticism.  She shared the curse of many artists—that praise beaded up and rolled off her while criticism stuck like glue, glue embedded with ground glass. --Alice referring to Kees Verwey
Alice listened to the small echo created by this conversation, the space outside the words that told her she would sleep with this woman tonight.  Everything between now and that eventuality was just filler.
Alice saw the standard equation of attraction had been altered for her.  Not only would she not have to hang her own paintings anymore, she would no longer have to rely on her own charms.  From here on, for a time anyway, her name alone would be enough to slide her into the beds of admirers.  A flinch of sadness caught her.
