Evan S. Connell's critically acclaimed novels featuring Mr. and Mrs. Bridge, a clean-cut Kansas City couple who find their traditional roles challenged by a changing world. As adventurous, free-thinking friends introduce new ideas into their household, Mrs. Bridge begins to question the life she has led as one by one her children leave home, but not for the lives she wished for them. Mrs. Bridge feels as if the world she built with her husband is crumbling, brick by brick, but Mr. Bridge remains resolute, a firm believer in his family and his place at the head of the table.
