Review

Praise for Julie Orringer’s "The Invisible Bridge"
 
"One of the best books of the year."
—Junot Diaz, author of "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao"
“If you’re still looking for a ‘big’ novel to carry into the summer holidays—one in which you can lose yourself without the guilty suspicion that you’re slumming—then Julie Orringer’s "The Invisible Bridge" is the book you want. . . . Stunning. . . .
