Wasn't sure I would like this book when I first started reading it but Wilder has a way of making the characters so meaningful and realistic you feel like you live next to them. No wonder he won a Pulitzer prize in literature for this one. Every reader should read The Bridge of San Luis Rey.
Published 1960. From the noted American author Thornton Wilder. Based on 18th century Peruvian history. Wilder takes the histories of the people who perished in this bridge disaster and weaves them into an engrossing tale.
