Description

Alexander's Bridge by Willa Cather Alexander's Bridge is the first novel by American author Willa Cather. First published in 1912, it was re-released with an author's preface in 1922. It also ran as a serial in McClure's, giving Cather some free time from her work for that magazine. Bartley Alexander is a construction engineer and world-renowned builder of bridges undergoing a mid-life crisis. Although married to Winifred, Bartley resumes his acquaintance with a former lover, Hilda Burgoyne, in London. The affair gnaws at Bartley's sense of propriety and honor. In this, Willa Cather's first novel, a successful bridge builder is torn between his beloved, charming wife and a beautiful Irish actress who had been his first love and has now returned to enchant and disrupt his life.
