The Invisible Bridge - Julie Orringer

In her ambitious book, The Invisible Bridge (Knopf, $26.95), Julie Orringer has created a family overwhelmed by the events of European history in the 1930s and ’40s. Andras Lévi travels from Budapest to Paris to study architecture. Everywhere there are portents of the deluge which will follow, but Andras, his friends, and his brother Tibor conduct their lives as though everything is normal. Paris is beautiful and the opportunities for the young architect are substantial. Meanwhile, the Nazis are closing in. Andras and Tibor return to Hungary and are eventually conscripted into work battalions; Orringer details the indignities visited on the Jewish population. Her expert writing and believable cast of characters result in a substantial retelling of World War II as experienced by one family in Hungary.
