About this book
This companion work to "Mrs Bridge" tells the tragi-comic story of a marriage. Satirical and deeply moving, this edition includes a new introduction by Lionel Shriver.
Walter Bridge, husband to India and father to three, is a successful lawyer in a Kansas suburb. The daily dramas of his life only serve to illuminate his prejudice, self-doubts and dreary existence - his Christmas gifts to the family are stock certificates, which he immediately takes back to manage on their behalf.
