Summary The author of thé graceful and compassionaté (People) New York Times bestseller Carry the One presents a new and long-awaited novel exploring what happens when untested people are put to a hard test, and in its aftermath, find themselves in a newly uncertain world. It́s the fall of 2016. Cate, a set designer in her early forties, lives and works in Chicagós theater community. She has stayed too long at the fair and knows it́s time to get past her prolonged adolescence and stop taking handouts from her parents. She has a firm plan to get solvent and settled in a serious relationship. She has tentatively started something new even as shés haunted by an old, going-nowhere affair. Her ex-husband, recently booted from his most recent marriage, is currently camped out in Catés spare bedroom, in thrall to online conspiracy theories, and shés not sure how to help him. Her best friend Neale, a yoga instructor, lives nearby with her son and is Catés model for what serious adulthood looks like. Only a few blocks away, but in a parallel universe we find Nathan and Irenécasual sociopaths, drug addicts, and small-time criminals. Their world and Catés intersect the day she comes into Nealés kitchen to find these strangers assaulting her friend. Forced to take fast, spontaneous action, Cate does something shés never even considered. She now also knows the violence she is capable of, as does everyone else in her life, and overnight, their world has changed. Anshaẃs flawed, sympathetic, and uncannily familiar characters grapple with their altered relationships and identities against the backdrop of the new Trump presidency and a country waking to a different understanding of itself. Eloquent, moving, and beautifully observed, Right after the Weather is the work of a master of exquisite prose and a wry and compassionate student of the human condition writing at the height of her considerable powers.
