Mrs Bridge / Mr Bridge

(A book in the Bridge series)
An omnibus of novels by

The Bridges are an unremarkable and conservative couple who live in Kansas City with their three children. Mrs Bridge spends her time shopping, going to bridge parties and bringing up her children to have nice manners; Mr Bridge is an outwardly successful lawyer who only wants the best for his family. And yet sometimes both experience the vague, disquieting sensation that all is not well in their comfortable lives.

In a series of comic, telling vignettes, Evan S. Connell illuminates the narrow morality, confusion and even terror at the heart of lives of plenty. Hilarious and heartbreaking in equal measure, these two novels - told from both perspectives of the marriage - deserve their place amongst the classics of American twentieth-century fiction.

Beautiful interlocking book format designed by Thomas Heatherwick.
