Walter Bridge, husband to India and father to three, is a successful lawyer in a Kansas suburb. The daily dramas of his life only serve to illuminate his prejudice, self-doubts and dreary existence – his Christmas gifts to the family are stock certificates, which he immediately takes back to manage on their behalf – yet he is also kind and charitable, loving his wife while never able to tell her so. In Mr Bridge, Evan S. Connell gives us a moving, satirical and poetic portrayal of a man who cannot escape his limitations, and a couple growing old together but unable, ultimately, to connect. With an Introduction by Lionel Shriver ‘A tour de force of contemporary American realism, a beautiful work of fiction.’ Life ‘To me the Bridges were a revelation: I cannot recommend them too highly.’ Daily Telegraph
