This 6 CD set audio-book from DOVE Audio featuring Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward narrating an abridged version of Mr. & Mrs. Bridge. It's the story of successful Kansas City lawyer Walter Bridge and his dissatisfied wife, India, in a portrait of a marriage that reflects both the husband's and wife's points of view.
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
