In this startling debut novel, Chris Belden explores one mans descent into obsession and loneliness after the sudden breakup of his marriage. Bereft and plagued by anxiety, Caleb journeys from heat wave-stricken New York City to the Pacific Northwest in search of escape, only to find that we always drag our baggage with us, both literally and figuratively. Dark, at times disturbing, and often hilarious, Carry-on deftly walks the thread-thin tightrope between existential dread and laugh-out-loud comedy.
