The basis for Mr. and Mrs. Bridge (1990), starring Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward
“A perfect novel . . . economical, piquant, beautiful, true” that chronicles the everyday lives of a well-to-do family in 1930s Kansas through the eyes of its remarkable matriarch (Meg Wolitzer, New York Times–bestselling author of The Female Persuasion)
In Mrs. Bridge, Evan S. Connell, a consummate storyteller, artfully crafts a portrait using the finest of details in everyday events and confrontations. The novel is comprised of vignettes, images, fragments of conversations, events—all building powerfully toward the completed group portrait of a family, closely knit on the surface but deeply divided by loneliness, boredom, misunderstandings, isolation, sexual longing, and terminal isolation.
In this special fiftieth anniversary edition, we are reminded once again why Mrs. Bridge has been hailed by readers and critics alike as one of the greatest novels in American literature.
