The Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder
First published in 1927 and winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1928, The Bridge of San Luis Rey is the moving story of a tragic accident and its aftermath by American author Thornton Wilder. The novel tells the fictional story of the victims of a horrific collapse of an Incan rope bridge in Peru and how they came to be on the bridge on that fateful day. Set in the early 18th century, the novel begins with a description of the bridge's collapse, which claimed the lives of all five people who were crossing it, by the tragedy's sole witness: a Franciscan friar, Brother Juniper, who was almost crossing the bridge himself when it collapsed.
