“This is an amazing story about a successful engineer and his simultaneous romantic relationships with two brilliant and capable women . . . The book is an exploration of this important question: Is it possible for good and moral people to have a healthy extra-marital affair?”

“The most sensuous of writers, Willa Cather builds her imagined world almost as solidly as our five senses build the universe around us.” Rebecca West

“She is undoubtedly one of the twentieth century's greatest American writers” Observer

ALEXANDER’S BRIDGE is Cather's first novel. It tells the story of the tortured inner life of Bartley Alexander, the scion of a prominent Boston Brahmin family, torn between his love for his wife and his mistress. In it Cather first explores the themes of identity, doubling, and the interior versus exterior romantic conflicts that would occupy her throughout her writing.
