THE CUT-UPS CARRY ON by James Marshall
FICTION
Released: May 1, 1990

Though somewhat tamer and less hilarious than their other adventures, Spud and Joe's reluctant entanglement with dancing school—and their ironic good fortune in winning the preferable second prize on a TV contest show—will still entertain fans of this irrepressible duo. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

CARRY ME ACROSS THE WATER by Ethan Canin

A richly detailed, intriguingly fragmented chronicle of the personal history and turbulent inner life of a prosperous German-American businessman. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

CARRY ON by Rainbow Rowell
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Oct. 6, 2015

"The novel playfully twists genre conventions—there are plenty of wink-wink, nudge-nudge moments to satisfy faithful fantasy readers—but it also stands alone as a modern bildungsroman. Carry on, Simon Snow. (author's note) (Fantasy. 14 & up)"
Meta-slash fiction for jaded optimists. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

CARRY ME by Peter Behrens
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Feb. 23, 2016

"There's no doubt about Behrens' talent, but the tragic romance at the novel's center doesn't equal the power of his sobering meditations on the fragility of human decency."
Behrens (The O'Briens, 2011, etc.) again casts his searching eye over the interaction of history and personal destiny, following two families from Edwardian England to Nazi Germany.Read full book review >
