Julie Orringer, best selling author of How to Breathe Underwater: Stories, is back with her first novel. The Invisible Bridge is an astonishing story of war and the dangerous power of art. In 1937 a Hungarian Jewish architecture student arrives in Paris with a puzzling letter that he is to deliver to C. Morgenstern. He becomes involved with the letter's receiver and at the same time his older brother is studying medicine and their younger brother drops out of school for the stage. The advent of the war turns their lives upside down as we watch from Hungarian villages, majestic opera houses in Budapest and Paris to life in forced labor camps and more.
