“There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning” Thornton Wilder, The Bridge of San Luis Rey

The Bridge of San Luis Rey is American author Thornton Wilder‘s second novel, first published in 1927 to worldwide acclaim. It tells the story of several interrelated people who die in the collapse of an Inca rope bridge in Peru, and the events that lead up to their being on the bridge. A friar who has witnessed the tragic accident then goes about inquiring into the lives of the victims, seeking some sort of cosmic answer to the question of why each had to die. The novel won the Pulitzer Prize in 1928.

The book was quoted by Tony Blair during the memorial service for victims of the September 11 attacks in 2001.

Thornton Niven Wilder (1897–1975) was an American playwright and novelist. He won three Pulitzer Prizes—for the novel The Bridge of San Luis Rey and for the two plays Our Town and The Skin of Our Teeth—and a U.S. National Book Award for the novel The Eighth Day. Sumber: Wikipedia
