Review:

"For all their satire and dark implications, the novels of the Bridge family remain in the memory as triumphs of faultless realism. Mr. Connell's art is one of restraint and perfect mimicry." -- The New York Times

"The reissue of these classic American novels is an event to be celebrated.... Mr. and Mrs. Bridge are forever human, forever vulnerable, forever pitiable. In spare, whimsical, ironic prose, Connell exposes each and every one of their wrinkles and then, in the end, offers them to us as human beings to be cherished." -- Jonathan Yardley

"With Mr. Bridge, Connell completes his saga of sweet joylessness and blunted sensibility, of marriage, family, and middle age on the plains of Protestantism. Together the Bridge novels achieve an understanding of provincial upper-middle-class U.S. life beyond anything in our literature... Mr. Bridge is a tour-de-force of contemporary American realism, a beautiful work of fiction..." -- Webster Schott, Life
