Posted September 18, 2018 11:08:22A collection of essays and short stories published by the New York Book Review in 2002, The New Yorker in 2006, and The New Republic in 2009, Anne Carson’s debut novel was about a struggling New Yorker whose life spirals out of control when her husband is arrested on a murder charge and she discovers that the killer was her boyfriend, her father, and her former lover.
The book’s author was also a writer for the now-defunct magazine, and Carson’s work has appeared in other anthologies, including The New Inquiry and The Atlantic Monthly.
The new collection includes a number of her essays and interviews, as well as her short stories, memoirs, and poems.
The New Jersey-born author has written a number on her life since the murder, including a collection of stories and essays titled “The Night I Met the Man I Loved,” and a memoir titled “A Long Way from Home.”
Here, we review the new collection’s first volume.
“A Book of Letters,” by Anne Carson A collection of letters and other writings by Anne and her son, Joshua Carson, in the style of his father.
The collection includes poems and other essays written by the family as well.
“In Memory of Anne,” by Anna J. Carson A memoir written by Anna Carson about her father’s death and her growing up in a family with an immigrant father.
“The Great American Story,” by Ann Landers An account of her childhood in Virginia and her mother’s migration to New York City in 1894.

“On My Father,” by Paul Auster A memoir of his childhood in France and the trials of his mother, Mary, in New Yorker magazine in 1962.
“She’s a Man,” by Margaret Weisberg A memoir, written in her mid-forties, of her time in Brooklyn and her first marriage to a man named Richard, who became her husband and father.
Anne Carson was born in 1887 in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and grew up there until she was six years old.
In 1920, she was living with her aunt, who, she told a friend, was “not an Irishman.”
Anne married Richard Carson, an immigrant from Ireland, in 1924, after he moved to New Jersey to work as a taxi driver.
A year later, Anne was named the winner of a national competition sponsored by the National League of Cities to help the family through the transition to adulthood.
She married Richard, and the couple lived in Manhattan, where they had three children, Peter, Robert, and Charles.
When Anne and Richard divorced in 1927, Anne moved to the small town of Northumberland, New York.
There, she lived with her sister, Frances, until her death in 1943, at the age of 83.
After her death, she left her estate to her two children, who were now living in California.
The Carson family moved to a small cabin on the Hudson River in Newburgh, New Hampshire, in 1956.
Frances, now 90, and their daughter, Ann, now 61, lived there until her husband died in 2001.
After Ann’s death, Frances’s brother and her daughter, both of whom had children from previous marriages, moved to Virginia.
Frances Carson’s son, Peter Carson, wrote about his family in a 2008 book titled “My Dad and His Children: A Family Affair in Crisis.”
“It was the best book I’ve ever written, because it made it seem like I was not a child at all, but rather a grown woman, and a grown man,” Peter Carson said of his book.
“It made me feel like a grown-up.”
Anne Carson died in New Hampshire on January 19, 2018.
Her husband, Richard Carson of North Carolina, died in September of that year.
In her final years, she wrote about her mother and father and their lives in her memoirs.
In 2018, The Times reviewed her memoir, “My Mother, My Father, My Son, My Daughter: My Life with Anne Carson,” and called it a “highly readable and deeply moving portrait.”
