Product description


Praise for Mrs. Bridge

"When I think about [
Mrs. Bridge]. . . a variant of this exchange occurs to me: If you have already read it, that’s wonderful, for chances are you love it too, and know how brilliant it is. And if you haven’t read it, or perhaps have never even heard of it, well, that’s wonderful too, because you are still lucky enough to be able to read it for the first time. . . Again and again. . . I find myself being a Mrs. Bridge evangelist, telling them that it’s a perfect novel, and then pressing copies on them. . . What writing! Economical, piquant, beautiful, true." —Meg Wolitzer, The New York Times

"Mr. Connell writes of this woman without patronage, without snickers, without, indeed, any comment whatever on what he sets down of her life. He tells her story, less in sketches than in paragraphs, and how it is done I only wish I knew, but he makes Mrs. Bridge, her husband and her children and her neighbors understandable and, because understandable, moving, in his few taut words."" —
Dorothy Parker, Esquire

""Mrs. Bridge is a hell of a portrait . . . She's as real and as pathetic and as sad as any character I have read in a long time."" —
Wallace Stegner
