This is an *ABRIDGED* reading of Mr. & Mrs. Bridge. It is read by Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward - and it is part of the 'Classics Read by Celebrities' audiobook series.
This audio production features the famous Hollywood couple who starred in the award-winning movie, Mr. & Mrs. Bridge: Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. Taken from Evan S. Connell's two novels, Mr. Bridge and Mrs. Bridge, this saga of marriage, family, and middle age on the plains of Protestantism is a tour-de-force of contemporary American realism. For Walter Bridge, an ambitious lawyer, and his wife, whose focus is her household, affluence and material comforts create a cocoon of community respectability that cloaks the void within.

''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.'' --New York Times Book Review
''Together, the Bridge novels achieve an understanding of provincial upper-middle-class U.S. life beyond anything in our literature . . . [A] tour-de-force of contemporary American realism, a beautiful work of fiction.'' --Webster Schott, Life
