Kirkus review praises fiction collection Bridge
Robert Thomas’ new fiction collection Bridge gets high praise from Kirkus review for its “tight and vivid prose,” “innovative structure,” and “emotional resonance.” Balancing “black humor and memorable one-liners” with the solipsism of the book's narrator, Alice, Thomas "brings readers deep into the eccentric and neurotic mind of its protagonist." According to the review, even a narrator given to “digression and extreme interiority” such as Alice “narrates the minutiae of her life with insight and wit.” Forming an overarching narrative from the 56 short vignettes, these pieces chart the decline of narrator Alice—"a lonely, at times suicidal woman." "With emotional resonance, an innovative structure and a unique narrator, Thomas crafts a book that's greater than the sum of its parts."
