PW *starred* review calls Bridge 'linguistic tours de force'

Bridge_Bookstore A new Publishers Weekly *starred* review is calling Robert Thomas' Bridge a series of “linguistic tours de force,” full of “crisp, concise, emotionally explosive riffs ... that together form an unsettling character study." "You’d pass her on the street and never notice Alice, who works in the word-processing department of a San Francisco law firm by day, and attends the opera, watches movies, or, home alone, listens to the voices in her head during off-hours. Alice leads her lonely life in what she calls the 'Goldilocks Zone': not too crazy, not too sane—a just-right (if tenuous) balance between calm and losing it." With monologues that are “alternately suicidal, murderous, funny, and vulnerable," the review says "Thomas has a gift for using a minimum of words with maximum effect.” Click here to read the full Publishers Weekly review of Bridge. Bridge is now available for pre-order from the BOA Bookstore. Newly printed copies are available from BOA and will ship out immediately. Get your hands on it early!
