"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."--Dan Chaon, author of Ill Will "Kirkus Reviews, starred review"
"The Carry the One author is adept at finding compassion in dire circumstances, a skill she brandishes with brilliance in Right After the Weather."--Dan Chaon, author of Ill Will "O, the Oprah Magazine"
"With sharply drawn characters, an ensnaring plot, and a look back at closeted gay lives, Anshaw, acutely attuned to the shifting weather of emotions and relationships, insightfully dramatizes the insistence of desire over convention and expediency and the endless reverberations of violence."--Dan Chaon, author of Ill Will "Booklist, starred review"
"Carol Anshaw is one of the best storytellers we have. She sees all the outside and all the inside--of this difficult time we live in, of these complicated, puzzling, heart-stopping lives we lead. No one can put down an Anshaw novel and we are lucky, especially now, to have this one arrive."--Amy Bloom, author of White Houses
"Right after the Weather is about the terrifying discoveries we make--about ourselves, about the world--when the membrane separating civilization from barbarity is torn. Carol Anshaw has a genius for rendering life on the page, for characters and situations as ferociously complicated as reality. She is a master."--Garth Greenwell, author of What Belongs to You
"I love the way Carol Anshaw looks at the world, her eye for people and the strangeness of the everyday. Right After the Weather is a beautiful study in light and dark contrasts, the lives of the blessed and the lives of the bleak, in the vein of Paula Fox's Desperate Characters." --Dan Chaon, author of Ill Will
"Anshaw brings a fresh, keen voice to this story of modern lesbian life...[it] will captivate readers."--Dan Chaon, author of Ill Will "Publishers Weekly"
