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 narrow prejudices and complacent outlook, yet he is also troubled by existential doubts, dark undercurrents of desire and a yearning for something forever out of his reach. In Mr Bridge, Evan S. Connell gives us a moving, satirical and poetic portrayal of a man who cannot escape his limitations and of a couple growing old together but unable, ultimately, to connect.
‘Mr Bridge is a tour-de-force of contemporary American realism, a beautiful work of fiction’ Life
